Boeing DC-9 Series 40

The Douglas Aircraft Company crafted the McDonnell Douglas DC-9, a single-aisle airliner. This design aimed to create a smaller variant resembling 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, thanks to its enhanced performance achieved through the stretched fuselage and wings. For the Series 40, Douglas further extended the fuselage to accommodate an additional 20 passengers.
