1958 - DC-8 introduction brochure
United was the launch customer for the Douglas DC-8. This brochure was published for their traveling Ã¢€Å“JetRamaÃ¢€Â exhibit. This was the beginning of the glamorous jet age, note the seating chart was evenly distributed between coach and first class. United withdrew the DC-8 in 1991 with a DC-8-71 flight from Hilo Hawaii to LA.
