Where Does All The AC DC-9s Go?

Found a picture on the Air Canada site of their retired DC-9 fleet:

The nose of the jet in the foreground look like it took a beating.

One was actually sold to an African startup. It left YUL on delivery a couple of weeks ago in its new livery.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Looks like the "beating" the nose took was a quick removal of the pitot tubes.
