Dear friends,


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 !!!


Best wishes,


Leonardo


p.s.: does anyone have an e-mail from some history department at Boeing?

The success of the DWC established Douglas Aircraft Company among the major aircraft companies of the world and led it to adopt the motto "First Around the World - First the World Around". The company also adopted a logo that showed aircraft circling a globe, replacing the original winged heart logo. This logo evolved into an aircraft, a rocket, and a globe and was adopted by the McDonnell Douglas Corporation following the merger of Douglas and the McDonnell Aircraft Corporation in 1967...

Quoting LPSHobby (Thread starter):

You could start at WebMaster.BCA@boeing.com and see where they send you.

But you might have better luck with the Museum of Flight archives: archives@museumofflight.org
