The DC-8 was Douglas Aircraft's first jet-powered transport. Between 1958 and 1972, Douglas (later McDonnell Douglas) built 556 of the four-engine planes in numerous variants; the DC-8 was the first commercial transport to break the sound barrier. This artifact contains a genuine CFM International CFM56-2 engine stator from a DC-8. The stators, or stationary airfoils, in a jet turbine engine control airflow through the rotor blades. The titanium engine stator is topped with a polished 1/2"-thick glass top, and the specially designed legs and cross-brace are fabricated from aluminum. This large table comfortably seats six. Includes Custom Hangar plaque and Certificate of Authenticity. Table measures 32.5"H x 53" in diameter without glass. Total weight 272 lb. Made in USA. *NOTE: This artifact is sold as is with no guarantee that parts maintain original function. Not for flight use.*
