Boeing DC-9 Series 33

The Douglas Aircraft Company developed the McDonnell Douglas DC-9, a single-aisle airliner. This design aimed to create a smaller variant akin to the larger DC-8, which had a significantly larger size and capacity. The initial design featured two rear-mounted Pratt & Whitney JT8D turbofans under the T-tail, facilitating a more streamlined wing design and incorporating built-in airstairs into the fuselage. In the late 1960s, Douglas introduced the Series 30, including the model DC-9-31, for a competitive market. This model was successfully submitted and purchased by Eastern Airlines in early 1967, owing to its enhanced performance achieved through the stretched fuselage and wings. The DC-9-33 was subsequently developed as a passenger/all-cargo variant with increased Maximum Takeoff Weight (MTOW) and upgraded avionics.
