From now on I am not going to believe anything anyone says on this site. I thought that someone would have got question 3 right.
3 should be N927L, from Airliners 58. Centre picture.
Quote "DC-9-34 N927L seen in October 1995, shortly after arriving at St. Louis in then new colour scheme N927L was the first aircraft so painted." end quote.

The entire article was on TWA OZARK NINES.

Well, we were close-but no winner.

Answers to the quiz are as follows:

1. True. Although they never operated the DC-9's and MD-80's. They were owned via the takeover of Muse Air. This was a "gotcha" question.

2. British Atlantic

3. N927L

4. NOBODY answered this one correctly. The answer to this one is Muse Air! Please see Deregulation Knockouts and Airliners Winter 1993.

5. Braniff

6. Lauda (Niki Lauda)

7. Alaska

8. Northwest

9. America, Fairwind, Tradewind. Please see Airliners Nov/Dec 1996 p. 39

10. Air New Zealand DC-10

Well since we didn't have a winner with this quiz, or the last one, that means the next quiz I post will have a triple prize!!

Tune in to Airliners.Net frequently to see when I post it!

Thanks to all who participated.
