Each a(n) is an n-digit (n-almost) prime; A001222(a(n))=bigomega(a(n))=n. 5,7,4,8,6,8,8,8 is thus the longest sequence of individual (appended) decimal digits to construct such a sequence.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..8.

a(1)=5 is a single-digit prime.

a(2)=57=3*19 is a 2-digit 2-almost prime.

a(3)=574=2*7*41 is a 3-digit 3-almost prime.

a(4)=5748=2*2*3*479 is a 4-digit 4-almost prime.

a(5)=57486=2*3*11*13*67 is a 5-digit 5-almost prime.

a(6)=574868=2*2*7*7*7*419 is a 6-digit 6-almost prime.

a(7)=5748688=2*2*2*2*11*89*367 is a 7-digit 7-almost prime.

a(8)=57486888=2*2*2*3*3*3*61*4363 is an 8-digit 8-almost prime.
