First flight of the DC-8 Super 61: Douglas launches the largest commercial jetliner in the world. On March 14,1966, Douglas opened a new era in jet travel with the first flight of the DC-8-61. This large capacity transcontinental airplane is one of Douglas' Super Sixty Series DC-8s, which are larger and will fly farther with more payload than any other commercial jets. The Super 61 is 37 feet longer than the standard DC-8, and will carry up to 251 passengers plus 22,500 pounds of freight. Scheduled to fly this summer is the Super 62-the longest-range intercontinental airplane. It combines increased length and wingspan with greater aerodynamic efficiency and improved fan-jet engine packages. The 62 will fly farther than any other jetliner-5750 miles with 150 passengers and 8000 pounds of freight. Later this year, the Super 63 will make its first flight. This will be the largest capacity transoceanic airplane. It incorporates increased size and design improvements for ultra-long range and large payloads. Heralded by the successful flight of the DC-8-61, the Douglas Super Sixty Series now becomes the most advanced group of jetliners in the world. And another important outgrowth of Douglas' more than 30 years of commercial aircraft leadership. DOUGLAS B rt. thing* don.
