McDonnell Douglas DC-9 Series 33

The McDonnell Douglas DC-9 is a single-aisle airliner designed and manufactured by the Douglas Aircraft Company. Initially proposed as a smaller variant resembling 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 included built-in airstairs on the fuselage. In the late 1960s, Douglas introduced the Series 30, specifically the DC-9-31 model, for a competition. Successfully submitted, it was purchased by Eastern Airlines in early 1967 due to its improved performance with the stretched fuselage and wings. Additionally, the DC-9-33 was developed as a passenger/all-cargo variant with enhanced maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) and avionics.
