The DC-8, now in flight, will carry you to new heights of luxurious air travel
DC-8 introduces you to Her Serene Highness – the Stratosphere Beneath the wings of the DC-8, the world falls swiftly below. The sky turns from blue to purple, and as you reach new heights, there conies over you a feeling of serenity never known to you before.
Cradled in your pressurized cabin in the Douglas Jetliner eight miles high, you gaze down on the toylike towns and peaks and waters of the world. Tranquilly suspended in the clear quiet of the stratosphere, you experience no sense of speed, no vibration, no engine’s roar . . . nothing but a beautiful peace of mind and body.
But the DC-8 offers more than speed and serenity. It brings you an unmatched history of experience, dependability and comfort. It is this which makes passengers and pilots look up to Douglas. You’ll sense it all in the fabulous . . .
