MD-80/DC-9 Crash

Sat Aug 07, 2004 11:54 pm

Can any one tell me where to find the accident report for the MD-80 that broke it's tail off during flight test. I've looked through the NTSB web sight and can't find it. (for those of you aren't familiar the video is here http://airdisaster.com/download/md80.shtml)

Actually, MCD had -two- MD80s have accidents in 1980, and I think the one you're looking for is this one:

There's a link to the NTSB report at the above link...

Easy to confuse them, since one was -at- YUM, and the other had flown YUM-EDW, and made the hard landing at EDW, and they also happened within months of each other.

Only one of the two (the YUM one) was write-off; the EDW was repaired and used as the UDF demo aircraft...

Thanks for the info, it's pretty hard to find on the NTSB site. BTW the site listed is fairly useful, thanks for the link.

Well, the MD-80 is technically DC-9-80, or at least that's what it says on the plaque inside the doorframe  Big grin
