DC-8 Passenger Cabin

Tue Sep 04, 2001 3:47 pm

I've virtually found everything I've ever wanted to view regarding airline photographs. But, I'm desperatly looking for photos of the ORIGINAL DC-8 passenger cabin! Those funky but retro-cool interiors that were a combination of jetage chic and prop liner classic. These interiors which were flown by United, Delta and Eastern back in the early to middle 60's. The windows had curtains instead of shades. The gaspers, reading lights and oxygen were housed in the seatbacks! Also, the Delta and Eastern birds featured a vertical flourescant bright light mounted on the upper right hand portion of your seat back! Please help me on this. These were really classic cabin layouts and it would be ashame if the younger generations of aviation enthusiasts never have the opportunity to see the early examples of the DC-8!
