Kind of fitting that the airline that introduced the DC-9 to mainline service will be the one that ends it. 43 years and counting. Has to be some kind of record. If Donald W Douglas were alive today I could just see the smile on his face as he shook his head in disbelief that its lasted this long in mainline service
If I am not mistaken... wasn't/isn't this one of the few A320s still wearing the 'bowling shoe' livery? Are all of the NW aircraft going into the paint shop so far still in the previous red top livery?
