Summary

Summary

In tracing Douglas' jetliner history from their first DC-8 to their ultimate mega-merger with Boeing in 1997, this book delivers coverage of America's most successful producer of jetliners. All Douglas jetliners are represented painted in a distinct livery in a variety of settings, in-flight and on the ground, inside and out: DC-8-30-40-50-60-70, DC-9-10-30-40-50, DC-10-20-30-40, MD-11-ER, MD-81-82-83-87-88, MD-90-30-50, and the MD-95. The historic roots of each Douglas design, reasons for evolutionary changes, and highlights of test programs and model careers are all covered. Also contains cockpit photos.
