Does anybody have any info on this airframe? It is painted in Spirit Airline colors but was this originally a Spirit aircraft?

Wannado City at Sawgrass Mall in Sunrise,Florida (outside Ft.Lauderdale) closed shop. They used an aircraft forward fuselage in there aviation section. It appears that it one of the items that will be auctioned on 1/11.

So it appears to have come on a truck from Roswell,NM to the facility in 2003. Perhaps this was never a Spirit bird?

Thanks but the timeline does not fit. Apparently the fuselage arrived in Sunrise,FL in 2003.

With original (and it appears only) operator. It was one of a few SAS DC-9s that temporarily used an experimental bare metal livery.

Thank you for the information. I was able to spend sometime inside the fuselage and it is indeed SE-DDT.

Thanks for the pictures from the database. It helped get more history on this airframe.
