I was having a blast with the A.net airliner quiz section, and I came across this photo:

I selected MD-80, but it was entered as a DC-9, so I got the answer wrong.

Somebody please tell me this is an MD-80!!!

:D

Depends on how specific you want to get. In theory, both are right. The MD-80 is what goes on the safety card, but in real life, its a DC-9-80.

Hi!

It's an MD80, could be a MD81/MD82/MD83/MD88, they all look the same, only by registration we can know the right model!!!

The aircraft is indeed an MD-83. It is c/n no. 49847 and has had the following registrations: N6202D, D-AGWC, HB-IUM, N834NK

Hope that lays matters to rest.

McDonnell Douglas used MDxx as a marketing tool. If an airline ordered one it would be ordered as a DC9-xx (xx meaning the model number). The registration paperwork would read DC9-81 for example.

MD81...DC9-81
MD82...DC9-82
MD83...DC9-83
MD87...DC9-87
MD88...DC9-88
MD95...DC9-95 (became the Boeing 717)

This also applied to the MD11:
MD11...DC10-50

By the way there is technically no such thing as a MD80. McDonnell Douglas never offered a DC9-80.

Hope this helps.  Smile

MD stands for McDonnell Douglas after the merge with McDonnell.
DC stands for Douglas Corporation...

MD11...DC10-50


Actually, MD-11 -> DC-11...

And just fyi, before the merge with Boeing, Stonecipher, Sears and others had planned to develop a mega jumbo: MD-12. Those plans came to nothing...

"MD87...DC9-87"
"MD88...DC9-88"

I wouldn't go that far.. McDD never assigned the DC9 prefix to the MD87 or the MD88. They had renamed the line MD8X by that time..



Caution wake turbulence, you are following a heavy jet.
