Are These Specific NW DC9s Still In Service?

Sun Mar 13, 2005 5:29 pm

I keep a fleet list of NW and the new livery.

I have just checked my lists and the A.Net photographs.

Are these aircraft retired/stored or camera shy? The date beside the registration is the date of the last photograph and I can't locate the registration on www.cactuswings.com as "in storage"?

N622NW -March 04
N949N - October 03
N8920E - March 04
N1308T - February 04
N1309T - February 03
N9333 - August 03
N754NW - June 03
N782NC - January 04
N786NC - November 03

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Seen just this year(2005) around the NW system by yours truly....
N622NW unsure of where spotted
N1308T unsure of where spotted
N1309T Seen at DTW in JAN 2005
N9333 Seen at FNT JAN 2005
N754NW..was on four times.. last NOV 9 2004..DTW-LAN
N786NC..Seen at DTW MAR 2005
N782NC unsure of where spotted

The others listed I have not seen in the past three to four months.
I have been on all listed by you in the past few decades and
fly NW 2 to 3 times a month, mostly 4 leggers and I watch N numbers like you.

Thanks for the replies.

I had also removed other aircraft with even older last photograph dates, but based on the response to the previous suggested deletions, I post them here:

Could anyone confirm these three to be still in service please:

N908H (Sept 2003)
N914RW (Dec 2000)
N9330 (May 2002).

The assistance is appreciated.

Thanks for that list PSU.DTW.SCE

I'd lost 9330 and glad it's in storage still with a chance to fly again.
MuseAir ships were missing too. 9330 was my first -30 and possibly the first -30 for RW

another good place to try and track down airplanes is a website called www.airlinerlist.com he keeps track of most of the commercial type airplanes and keeps the list up to date.

Hope this might help
