2007 was an historic year for Boeing with the 40th Anniversary of the first flight of the
737-200 which first took to the skies back in 1967 on August 8th. To commemorate this we

Inflight200 are pleased to be able to offer model types of airliners and military transports from
1960's to the current day.
We celebrated in 2007 also the 40th anniversary of the Douglas DC-8-63 which first flew on
1967 and was delivered to KLM Royal Dutch Airlines on July 15th of the same year. The
aircraft was then
put into commercial service on July 27th 1967. With the development of the series 63
aircraft which was
the fuselage of the DC-8-61 and the wings of the DC-8-62, we at Inflight thought it would be

their aircraft. Once licensing is agreed, and royalties are negotiated, we can move on to stage
