I liked the DC-8 and its huge windows also. The only thing I didn't like about it was there was a lot more space between windows than in other jets. If the seat rows were lined up with the windows so that each row had one big window, it would be great. But the last few times I flew United DC-8s, the seat rows had been moved closer together, so you often had to lean way forward or back to see out your piece of window, or your seat row was lined up with the space between windows, so you had no window at all, just a wall. I ended up walking through the plane writing down the numbers of the rows that were lined up comfortably with the windows so that I could ask for those seats when I booked my flights.
