Wrong. NW never took delivery of a factory-delivered DC-9; about half the current fleet was acquired from RC (and most of RC's DC-9 were acquired second-hand, discounting North Central and Southern) and the other half was post-merger via the mid-1990s.

Oh, and if someone wants to get picky:

I consider NW DC-9 as FACTORY DELIVERED even though its through a merger. Most of them were delivered new to predecessor airlines.

The above mentioned DC-9s were not delivered to NW originally. Acquistion through merger does not, in my opnion, count.

Without spending an hour poring over my database, I'll venture that there is no first tier operator of any DC-9 prior to the -80 series.



Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

Other than the majority of the -50s, which delivered to North Central/Republic, virtually all of RC's DC-9 were acquired second-hand. Nonetheless, it's not being 'nit picky' since RC was a totally different airline than NW and the latter would've never purchased a DC-9.

I didn't mean those that I showed in particular.

Well, for me it does.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Anyway....forget Northwest.

No other carriers?  Sad

Finnair operates 10 factory delivered DC-9-50's.

The Italian govt still owns one factory delivered DC-9-30 but it seems to be temp storage at Ciampino.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Back to the topic, guys!


I am not sure, if Finnair has already phased out the last -51. Also, I don't know if and how many VC-9s are still in service with the US Air Force and Navy. However, two operatos of original DC-9s come into my mind: Aeromexico has still some of its younger series -31 and Aeropostal of Venezuela still operates the original -51s. Any more?

Technically, all MD80s are actually DC-9-80s, so I imagine there are quite a few factory delivered and still in service with the original owner.

You question refers, I assume to DC9s up to the -50.

I checked the current operators (source: http://www.airlinerlist.com and the following still operate factory new DC-9 (pre MD-80)s:
US Navy, USAF, Aeropostal, AeroMexico and JAT



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

I think the USAF sent the last of its C-9s to AMARC not too long ago.
