Was at the MSP tower today, and Northwest 127 bound for DLH turned back to MSP due to an Engine failure. Plane landed safely, no one was hurt and the aircraft taxied back to the gate on one engine.
Note: This is just a heads up, not to start anything regarding the Mechanics issue, or any other DC-9 Issue!!

They will all be gone within fifteen years, and maybe closer to ten.

You sure about that? I thought they were going to by Gulfstream Vs and start ferrying pax around in them to lure more customers.

the only replacement for a DC-9 is a DC-3.

Does the DC-9 saga ever end?

When was the last time the DOT and FAA looked into the safety of these near extinct birds?

Btw, NWA had to write off and scrap 2 DC-9s this year already due to relatively minor damage! They´re so old, even the slightest damage makes them unworthy to repair. Shiny new silver paint or not doesn´t matter.

Interesting, care to enlighten the rest of us?

You talking about the DC-9 that had a fuel truck run into it, destroying the radar and part of the cockpit

The plane that ran into another which roof was basically completely gone and the rest of the cockipit destroyed by jetfuel?

I think NWA may wait for 737NGNG or A320NG to replace the DC-9. Or they may keep flying them, for oh, about 100 more years. I wonder, are they considering a ERJ 170/190 as a suitable replacement?

You guys crack me up.

I heard from a friend of my sister's boyfriend's father that NW is planning on rehiring all their mechanics and designing their own DC-9 replacement in-house.

Know of two other DC-9s rotting away? Other than the one that lost the hydralics, I'd call that damage relatively minor to other planes that have returned to service.

NWA needs to track down some spare cash and a decent product before they even think about buying more new planes. Rumor has it the tails will now be painted silver to match the fuselage because all the red they have is going to the balance sheet.

I can't remember the last time I was laughing after a reading a post on a.net!!! Thank you for making my day  Smile Smile Smile Smile

Anybody care to know the reg on that one? Would be interesting how many decades this plane has been in service.

By the way, I just remembered something... When you look at the ads with houses for sale, they always mention the particular house being so many years young, i.e. 90 years young. Shouldn't the same be said about these planes?

According to some sources here on a.net with some slight inside ties to NWA, the DC9's will be replaced by A32x's that are continuing to be delivered to NWA, and a new regional carrier, working name NEWCO that will operate E-Jet type aircraft.

I remember asking the chief pilot at NW one time how long the DC-9's were going to be around. He stated that NW could continue flying them well past 2020. The airframes on the older models still had plenty of cycles left to do so.

He did mention however that past 2025 the fleet would quickly fade due to the cycles.

Take it for what its worth but if the planes are paid for and they can keep the tires on, they might just make it past 2010 in NW colors.

2010 sounds more realistically than 2025, because these airframes are already pushing close to their maximum allowable life of 100,000 hours. But this is all I want to say because first of all, this is already getting off topic and furthermore, such a topic gets people annoyed so let's get back to the original topic of an engine failure at MSP. Let's try to keep it free of "When will NW replace those old DC-9s" although it will be very difficult to do.

Sorry to hear about the emergency, but I am glad no one was hurt.
And for my 2 cents: I heard NW are replacing their DC-9s with Fokker F28-1000s (please note the sarcasm).
