I think it's a DC-9-30 plane but the aircraft type listed is DC-9-1 ...

Do you agree with me? of the Future

Clearly a -30 series. The -10/14/15 did not have leading edge slats.

Hello all,

As this does indeed appear to be a -30 of some sort (probably a -32?), I have updated the type to "McDonnell Douglas DC-9-3..."

Hope this makes it a little clearer!

Best regards,

Erm, is this thing on?

According to this site:

It's a safe bet it's a DC-9-32.

It also has two overwing exit windows. Very few, if any -10s had two. I agree with those voting it's a -30 series.

Is just me, or is flying not as much fun anymore?
