In the fifities Douglas used a logo with Douglas in ted, the globe an 3 planes, so, somewhen in late fifties or early sixties, it added a rocket climbing to its logo. Does anyone knows when exactly this change was made?
In truth, I want to know wich logo was applied to Alitalia DC-8-43s when they were received in 1960, and to other early DC-8s too !!!
p.s.: does anyone have an e-mail from some history department at Boeing?
