The Douglas DC-8 is a narrow-body airliner manufactured by the Douglas Aircraft Company, introduced in 1958. The project for this jetliner was initiated by Douglas following a prior competition loss to the Boeing KC-135 in 1955. The DC-8, directly derived from the proposed aircraft for the competition, quickly gained popularity upon the commencement of deliveries. The DC-8 Series 60 was later introduced, with the initial model in the series, the DC-8 Series 61, undergoing several modifications. While designed for higher capacity, it initially sacrificed the range of the DC-8, a drawback later addressed in subsequent developments within the Series 60.
