Tomorrow (Sunday 6.1.02) SAS will opperate its last DC9 flight. when OY-KGR lands at OSL after a domestic flight from Kristiansand (city in southern norway) an era in european aviation will be over.

The DC9 has served SAS for 34 years and has a total flighttime with SAS that equalls 350 years in the air.

The last DC9 were secheduled to leave in March 03, but due to rescent economical problems in the aviation world, it happens tomorrow.

For me as a Noregian citizen, this is realy sad news. In my eyes the DC9 was the nicest aircraft in SAS's fleet.

I have only had the opportunity to fly this bird twice with SAS (from what i remember), and bothe flights were marvelous (CPH-OSL in 1999, and OSL-ARN in 2000) What i liked most with scandinavians dc9 were that they had the original interior (only new seats back in the 80's I think)

We'll miss you. They were all too young to die

A sad moment indeed......

My first and only experience aboard a DC 9, on OSL-TRD and back in 1993. Unfortunately, I didn't note the registration of the plane.......

This is very sad. I´ve gotten to fly on SAS DC9´s a couple of times during the last five years and it is also the only SAS aircraft in which I´ve stayed in the cockpit for the entire flight (CPH-GOT).
Tomorrow is now going to be a sad day for me.
Farewell DC-9!!!!!!!!

It is sad...I see many carriers retiring thier DC-9's. For economic reasons, I see why the old workhorse has to go, but that doesn't make me any happier about it. What major airline besides NW is still using DC-9's?

I was just wondering if any of our scandinavian members are going to the pictures of this last flight?

I think the flight is SK 2388 leaving KRS @ 7:15pm and arriving Osl @ 8:00pm

The last SK DC-9 flights (revenue,that is!) will take place on Sunday the 7th,tomorrow,and will terminate at CPH and ARN.
Today sees the last DC-9 flight on the Norwegian Domestic routes.
I remember my first ride on a DC-9:30th December 1968,CPH-MAD,LN-RLJ "Stein Viking".This plane is now flying with NW.
Finnair will continue flying the DC-9 Classic for some time still.

A sad day indeed...
My first DC-9 finally took place on a SAS machine in June 2000, from CPH to Bergen, it was a wonderful flight.
Many DC-9 operators withdrew their fleet in the last half year ; Iberia, US Airways, TWA, Air Canada, Hawaiian and now SAS.
Apart from Northwest, remaining major passenger operators are: AirTran (35), Midwest Express, AeroMexico and JAT, and many local operators, especially in Latin America, like AeroCalifornia, AeroCaribe, Aeropostal and Intercontinental Colombia.

I wrote Sunday but meant Monday!7th still valid,also tomorrow.
No,Jan,no DC-9 memories out of Torslanda.I remember some flights as passenger on CV-440 and DC-7 as they used to stop there enroute from CPH to FBU.I also remember seeing one of Transair's 727's taking off at what must have been close to maximum TOW as it barely missed some small islands off shore.probably a charter flight.

Does anyone remember the SAS DC-9's in the all silver colors scheme . I've asked a lot of spotters about them but no-one seems to remember them. They were around in the 1980's ?????

Taken from a swedish newsletter:

"The last DC-9-flights are preliminary as follows: SK827 ---> Norrköping - Köpenhamn
SK648 ---> Hamburg - Köpenhamn
SK163/164 ---> Arlanda - Göteborg - Arlanda
The fourth DC-9, SE-DDT will fly empty to the base in Oslo around 1300"


Note that one of the last flights go to GOT Smile. I will surely miss those noise and dirty DC-9's. From now I'll have to go to ARN to see them with AY.

Only the last 4 DC-9-41's delivered to SAS were in the bare metal scheme.
It was an experiment just to find out how much more maintenance was needed contra fully painted ones in the harsh Scandinavian climate.They were re-painted fairly quicly!
