Hello all,

It seems to me that certain types of the Douglas DC-8 is equipped with
spoilers/airbrakes (Super 70 series?). I have been searching through my
source material to find out if the DC-8 was supplied with airbrakes from the
factory, or if this was something added later.

Can anyone please shed some light over this, in particular; did the Super 62
and Super 63 have airbrakes?

Kind Regards and Happy New Year,
