DC-8 Series 30 For intercontinental routes, the three Series 30 variants combined JT4A engines with a one-third increase in fuel capacity and strengthened fuselage and landing gear. The DC-8-31 was certified in March 1960 with 16,906 lbf (75.2 kN) JT4A-9 engines for 150 tons (136 tonnes) maximum weight. The DC-8-32 was similar but allowed 154 tons (140 tonnes) weight. The DC-8-33 of November 1960 substituted 17,625 lbf (78.4 kN) JT4A-11 turbojets, a modification to the flap linkage to allow a 1.5° setting for more efficient cruise, stronger landing gear, and 158 tons (143 tonnes) maximum weight. Many -31 and -32 DC-8s were upgraded to this standard. A total of 57 DC-8-30s were produced.
