AeroClassics 1:200 Series AC219716
Douglas DC-8-61 Diecast Model
Air Jamaica, 6Y-JGG

Limited Edition

1:200 Scale   Length   Width
Douglas DC-8-61   11.25"   9"

The "Super DC-8" Series 61 was designed for high capacity and medium range. It had the same wings, engines and pylons as the -55, and sacrificed range to gain capacity. Having decided to stretch the DC-8, Douglas inserted a 240-inch plug in the forward fuselage and a 200-inch plug aft, taking overall length to 187 feet 4 inches. The added length required strengthening of the structure, but the basic DC-8 design already had sufficient ground clearance to permit the one-third increase in cabin size without requiring longer landing gear. The variant first flew on March 14, 1966, and was certified on September 2, 1966, at a maximum weight of 325,000 pounds. Deliveries began in January 1967 and it entered service with United Airlines in February 1967. It typically carried 180-220 passengers in mixed-class configuration, or 259 in high-density configuration.

Please note: An optional display stand is available separately if you wish to display this model "in-flight".
