Douglas DC-8 is on the Aerosoft Apron

Aerosoft announced that they are now working on Douglas DC-8, one of the most popular narrow body jetliners.


A project not shown before, the Douglas DC-8 by Micheal Cepanda (and friends). It’s a medium complexity project covering one of the most famous jets ever to grace the skies. Now the DC-8 is a simple aircraft with many but basic systems so most are simulated down to fine detail.

We’ll have more details soon.

About Douglas DC-8

The Douglas DC-8 (also known as the McDonnell Douglas DC-8) is a four-engine long-range narrow-body jet airliner built from 1958 to 1972 by the Douglas Aircraft Company. Launched after the competing Boeing 707, the DC-8 nevertheless kept Douglas in a strong position in the airliner market, and remained in production until 1972 when it began to be superseded by larger wide-body designs, including the Boeing 747, McDonnell Douglas DC-10 and Lockheed L-1011 TriStar. The DC-8’s design allowed it a slightly larger cargo capacity than the 707 and some re-engined DC-8s are still in use as freighters.
