No consensus exists among historians as to the origin of the city's name. Possible namesakes include: Diego Morón, whose widow, Isabel Torres Briseño, was one of the area's landowners in the 18th century; Pedro Morán, another local landowner; the town of Morón de la Frontera, in Andalucia, Spain, from which many of the town's first residents originated; and San Pedro de Morón, the patron saint of a local doyennne at the time.

For some reason when I think of Austral I think of Australia even though I know the airline is Argentian. What is the reason for the name. Does it mean something special & aviation related in Spanish?

Out of curiosity, is that a high number of hours/cycles for a DC-9 airframe?

Its a good number; the record holder is N669HA from HA with 95,132 cycles (probably low hours due to island hoping).

One of the ex-AA/TWA birds that DL just bought for parts had over 70,000 hours on it. IIRC some of the older NW -9s had numbers near 100,000/100,000

Northwest Airlines had several DC-9-30s that flew over 100,000 cycles. About 103,000 cycles. The FAA limited the DC-9 to 100,000 cycles or the next major check
