Hushkit specialist Comtran has brought its Stage 4-compliant Super Q MD-80 family demonstrator to Farnborough in the UK ahead of the Farnborough air show next week...

...Comtran owner Doug Jaffe plans to lease the 93 former US Airways MD-80s once made Stage 4 compliant, through his Jetran International venture.

Mr. Jaffe has ambitious plans indeed.

Thanks

Your link does not work.

93 ex-US Airways MD-80's? That has got to be a mistake, AFAIK there were only about 30 in the fleet.

Thanks!  Smile I am really interested in this project, even if I think that it won't be very successful, as it does not cure the main disadvantage of the -80 nowadays, i.e. the relatively high fuel consumption.

They fitted winglets, so the MD-80 is more "fuel friendly"....

Maybe they got that number backwards...39 - but probably not 93.

Yet strangely, it was fitted with the old-style non-fuel friendly tailcone. Hrrrm.
