Douglas manufactured 32 Dc8-43s, the Rolls-Royce Conway powered type: 15
for Alitalia, 11 for Air Canada and six for Canadian Pacific.
Second-hand users included Air Jamaica, Cargolux, Cubana, Lybian Arab,
Zambia Airways, Zantop and the US FAA.

I don't have the data for the Boeing 707-420, the Conway-powered 707, but
you can add Varig and Israel's El Al to your list.
