Hello. It will be a sad sad day for Dc-9 and US Airways fans alike. US Airways will retire its last Dc-9-30 on Saturday August 18th. The Last flight operated by this majestic bird will fly from PHL-PIT (From US's second largest hub to its largest). The Flight Will depart PHL at 8:00PM EST and arrive at PIT at 9:26PM EST. It is scheduled to depart PHL at gate B16 and arrive at gate B36 at PIT. This marks the end of the original Allegheny Airlines airplane. This Dc-9 went into service with Allegheny Airlines in the early 60's and is the last survivor of Allegheny Airlines still in operation with the US Airways Mainline fleet. I believe the reg. of this plane is "N912VJ" but i am not totally sure. I will try to make an apperance at the gate to get photos of the arrival on its last flight at gate B36 at PIT. Photos will be displayed at :
Since this is a night arrival, lighting will be a problem but I hope that i should get a photo of this histric, yet sad event.
