At 12:35 today, this DC-9-32, fin#711 made its final landing at the Canada Aviation Museum in Ottawa, Canada.
A landing on the 3000 feet runway was quite a feat. No problem for Rob Giguère, chief pilot at Air Canada.
Coming in...low over the trees, the last seconds of flight for this plane.
Hard braking right after the numbers, under 2900 feet left!!!
2000 feet landing. Well done. Swinging it around on the little runway meant for 172`s and the like.
Auxilliary Power Unit still running, guests invited to take a peak in.
Interior look at this museum piece. Clean.
View of the cockpit. Now facing her new friends. A rather scruffy- looking Bristol Beaufighter, a DC-4M North Star, and the prototype Dash 7.
Thanks for the look inside. Time to tow it away for good.
