Northwest DC9-10's At DTW

Thu Nov 23, 2000 2:51 am

I was interested in photographing Northwests' DC9-10's at DTW. I heard on a related post that they will be getting rid of these by year end. Are these planes currently flying out of DTW? If so, how many routes do they fly from DTW with this plane?

Just a suggestion. Go to NWA.com, access the flight schedule and look for departures out of DTW. The aircraft designation DC9 is for the DC9-10. The designation D9S is for the DC9-30.

DC9 = DC9-10
D9S = DC9-30 and DC9-40
D95 = DC9-50

Then of course we go into the whole world of DC-10 codes and the 75N versus 75R, so lets leave it at this!

NW is still using DC-9-10's for runs DTW-CLE-DTW. But not every run. Still, you have a relatively good chance of seeing one at CLE as well.

Also, Midwest Express (YX) uses a lot of DC-9-10s MKE-CLE-MKE as well.

Thanks for the help! Actually I did look at their on-line timetable, but I didn't see anything explaining the differences in DC9 designation. Now, I know better!

Thanks,

Dave

NWA 747-400 :

I haven't seen D94 in a while - all my DC9-40 flights (usually ATL-MEM) have been designated as D9S for the last few months.
