The Douglas DC-8 went through a comprehensive development and flight test process, which was captured on a series of promotional colour chine films that were distributed to prospective airlines between 1957 and 1959.
We were able to professionally digitize a number of these historic films to exclusively present on this DVD. It should be noted that the image quality on these 60 year old films is not to the same standard that we are used to in this modern age of HD. Also, some of the films experienced age related breakdown and shrinkage which were beyond our control. But we felt the historical value of the films was the over-riding factor and it was important that the films be made available despite their technical limitations.
