Hong Kong - Douglas DC-8 Fan Jet

Poster issued in an art print format by Douglas Aircraft Company to promote the DC-8 Fan Jet. Philippine Air Lines had begun to operate DC-8 the previous year. The view of Central and Hong Kong harbour is somewhat stylised, particularly since there is no pagoda located within several miles of the one in the foreground of this image.
