43 DC-9-30F
29 DC-9-40PC

To answer your second question, they lack cargo doors because Airborne uses a special pod system that is wheeled onboard through the normal passenger loading door.

Spacepope is 100% correct..... Airborne has a great idea in that they do not need to spend the money to heavily modify their planes to make them 'cargo ready'. Rip out the seats, put up some GIL Liner and away you go.
