The McDonnell Douglas DC-9 Series 30 is a single-aisle airliner designed and manufactured by the Douglas Aircraft Company. Conceived initially as a smaller variant akin to the larger DC-8 in size and capacity, the original design featured two rear-mounted Pratt & Whitney JT8D turbofans under the T-tail. This design choice facilitated a cleaner wing design and incorporated built-in airstairs on the fuselage. In the late 1960s, Douglas introduced the Series 30 to compete with the Boeing 737 twinjet. The DC-9-31 design, featuring a stretched fuselage and wings, was successfully submitted and purchased by Eastern Airlines in early 1967 due to its improved performance.
