DC-8 Book Info.

Thu Nov 02, 2000 2:01 pm

Hi, I have a book titled "Boeing 707 pioneer jetliner" from Rene J. Francillion. It is published by motorbooks. I am looking for the exact same type book, but for the DC-8 & cannot find it anywhere! Any ideas?

Thank you, RT

Are you sure motorbooks published it? I would say the best DC8 books are "Douglas 8" of "Great Airliners" series, vol. 2, and "Boeing 707, DC 8 and VC 10" of "Legends of the Air", vol. 6.

I think Terry Waddington either has written a volume on the DC-8 or has one in progress. I searched around but couldn't find it.
