Wrong, this is a DC-30 using the original -and very noisy- P&W JT4A engines with roundish cowling and distinct exhaust "flute" noise attenuator and reverse clam shells and flew only until the mid-60s when there were superceded by the DC-8-60s series fitted with more efficient JT3D turbofan engines, cowlings were streamlined and the noise was more civilized.
