DC-8-50 Jet Trader Cargo Door Photos?

Wed Jan 12, 2011 5:48 pm

An unusual request, this, but I'm helping out somebody with a modeling project - I wondered, does anyone have a photo that details the cargo door mechanicals of a factory DC-8-54/5 Combi, or interior photos thereof? The cargo door is slightly different on the 50-series from the later, longer eights and conversions, and the project is aimed at replicating a scene from 1965.

Just wondering if anybody would have material like this that might not be DB-worthy but would be good for reference and historical documentation. Photography of DC-8 combi interiors of this era, particularly those of Seaboard World Airlines or Airlift International/Riddle, no matter what they picture would also be extremely useful.
