A couple of questions concerning this incident:

1) I assume that American Intl Airways is/was a cargo carrier?

2) Would you consider this pilots actions:
a) Normal
b) Questionable, but safe
c) Dangerous

In the
full narrative it says that they even considered continuing to ATL @ 8000ft.

Would a DC-8 fly at normal speed @ 8000ft ?
That would be interesting to see go overhead.

I am not going to pass judgement on the dession to continue as I am unfamiliar with cargo operators procedure. However if your FE said that the emergency exit seemed to be inplace during the pre-flight inspection I highly doutb that was thought twice about.

American International was a fairly large contract freight carrier. It used to be known as Kaliita.
A DC-8 could probably go near max speed at 8000 ft, but it would be illegal. Max speed below 10000 ft is 250 kt.
As for the pilots judgement. Stupid, very dangerous, and license losing. I'll bet he can't even fly a Cessna 150 anymore.

The day you stop learning is the day you should die.
