NW DTW-MSP (January 1999)

Thu Feb 22, 2007 1:54 pm

I have a quick question for anybody who can answer.

On January 2, 1999 I flew from DTW to MSP on Northwest and I would like to know the type of aircraft I flew on because I was 9 and wasn't really into aviation at the time so I didn't pay too much attention to what aircraft I was flying on. If there is anybody who can get this information, I would appreciate it!

BTW, it was flight 101 from DTW to MSP

Good luck - there's probably what, 15-20 NW flights from DTW-MSP a day? Anything hub to hub on an airline will have high frequencies and a variety of a/c. Only time I flew NW was back in 1993, and the MSP-DTW leg was on a DC10.

According to this site: http://www.bts.gov/xml/ontimesummary...c/dstat/OntimeSummaryDepatures.xml
the plane was N157US. A search here shows it to be a DC-10-40. Luck you!

Yeah, I would agree with that site, most of the 1xx flight numbers back then were DC-10-40 domestic flights. Back then there were a ton of DC-10's flying between DTW-MSP.

DC-10 - probably a series 40. NWA 101 continued on MSP-PHX.
