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.
