Boeing 707 Douglas DC-8 and Vickers Vc10


by: Stewart Wilson
The sixth volume in the Legends of the Air Series, Boeing 707, Douglas DC-8 and Vickers VC10 studies in depth three pioneering long range jet airliners responsible for shrinking the globe, plus the military KC-135 members of the Boeing 707, an aircraft which paved the way for Boeing's commercial airliner success.

In turn this books looks at the diverse Boeing 707 family, ranging from the many 707 airliner variants, to the medium range 720 airliner, KC-135 Stratotanker (more than 700 were built) and the many 707 military developments such as the E-3 Sentry AWACS; the story of the Douglas DC-8, a very competent and well liked airliner but as a program one that nearly bankrupted Douglas and led to the merger with McDonnell; and the Vickers VC10, a considerable technical achievement whose sales were hamstrung by unique design requirements and poor timing.
