Any MD-90 Up For Grabs?

Fri Apr 14, 2006 1:54 pm

I believe Reno Air had a couple MD-90s in the fleet. Does anyone know if there are any MD-90s in the desert still? Or have all been accounted for?

Thanks. I was just curious, as you don't see them much anymore.

Reno Air's fleet included 5 MD-90s, N901RA thru N905RA. A link here, altho it's hasn't been updated to show all the MD-90s. Regards.

Actually, quite a few are stil flying. I had two "90" flights on Delta last holiday time. Delta's flights generally go through SLC. The aircraft's powerplants are good for high alititude areas. Hence RenoAir having some. SAS had some for awhile and Hello of Switzerland has some. Hello's livery looks really nice on the 90. Some however are going to the scrapper. The prototype and a number of others are sadly gone. There was a recent thread and images of this. You can see it here:

But if you are a Mad Dog 90 fan like me, it is a sad sight to see.

There was another thread a while ago about some ex-saudia '90s that were being turned in off lease.

These particular birds have a 717-style cockpit (whereas, DL's have a cockpit more similar to the '88s) ...
