NW615 MLI-MSP 02 APR, 1988

While cleaning out the garage today, I found lots and lots of old airplane memorabilia. Braniff timetables, buttons, a Northwest Orient free reward ticket, a 1981 AA 727 safety card, and even an application for the teacher in space program (the Challenger mission). Anyway, I also found an old boarding pass for a flight from MLI (Moline, IL) to MSP. It was flight 615 on April 2, 1988. Does anybody happen to know what kind of plane it would have been? Would it have been a NW airlink or mainline NW?? Any help and information would be greatly appreciated.

I also found my intenerary and my flight from MSP on March 26, 1988 was flight NW1497 (MSP-MLI). If anyone has info on that flight, it would really help.

Though I don't have a NW timetable from 1988, here is what I find in their January 5-31, 1987 and September 6-30, 1989 timetables for MSP-MLI:

MSP-MLI: one daily non-stop NW964 eqp DC9
MSP-CID-MLI: two daily flights; NW106 eqp 72S and NW1254 eqp DC9
MLI-CID-MSP: three daily flights; NW231 and NW426 opb DC9, NW355 opb 72S
(no non-stops MLI-MSP)

DC9 specifically denoted DC-9-14/15 series aircraft, since NW also used the designations D9S, D95 and M80 in the same timetable.

MSP-MLI and MLI-MSP: all flights were operated non-stop by Mesaba for NW (in the NW3000-3399 flight numbers range), 4x each way Mon-Fri with frequency reduced on weekends. Equipment type, not shown in timetable, would have been F27 or Metro III turboprops.

Since the NW flight numbers allocated to "service provided by other carriers in conjunction with Northwest" were 2000 or higher, NW651 and NW1497 were no doubt mainline-operated NW flights.

Did Fischer Brothers operate out of MSP too like they did at DTW with CASA 212, Short 360s, Do 228s and ATR 42s?

Ironic. I flew NW615 on June 21, 2003. It was MDW-MSP on a Boeing 757-200 though.
