The heaviest of DC-8s, the -73, has an MTOW of 355,000lbs.
|Quoting Skidmarks (Reply 7):|
They were miles bigger and heavier than most of the piston-props and any turbo-props around.
|Quoting N1120A (Reply 13):|
Makes sense as the Super DC-8s were the largest narrowbodies until the 753 came into being
|Quoting Soyuzavia (Reply 14):|
You are both almost correct.
The narrowbody Tu-114, with a MTOW of over 170,000kg (375,000lb), was heavier than all 707 and DC-8 variants, and it was longer/wider than some of the variants, and although it was a turboprop, it was indeed faster than some of the 707/DC-8 variants.

If the max number of passengers certificated to FAA/JAA standards was more than 259, I stand corrected
