How could anyone forget Reno Air  Smile
The red zone is for the immediate loading and unloading of passengers only, there is no stopping in the white zone...(Ai

I'm surprised! Nobody have any thoughts/photos
on the DC-9-80/MD-80? Or DC-9 series.

The DC-9 Series is one of my all-time favorites along with the other older gals including the 732 and 727.

TWA's old livery on the old -9s will always provoke interest in any airline buff. . .instant classic from the day it was first introduced.

Love those nines,

I liike the AA MD-80s, they may be numerous and all the same, but the bare-metal and red white n blue looks good on em to me. Delta and AS also have great lookin -80s. I love NW new colors on their DC-9s!

I hear that kulula are getting MD-80's. It'll be great to see Md-80's in South Africa. They also have a great livery.
