Prototype "Super 80". Clean after the last rain storm wash. Sorry, couldn't shoot over fences. First flight & Delivery date were same - October 18, 1979. Other serials - N560MD with Douglas Aircraft Company & IASG - International Airline Support Group. Wears FN 980 with Douglas Aircraft Company. Broken-up at GYI (Sherman-Grayson) in 1994 as N980DC. Demonstrated at 1988 Farnborough Airshow, where I was very lucky to a get a great closeup of her #1 engine.

Oh! I love this period photo! I was such a fan of the "Super 80." Its sad to see less and less of that classic DC-9 look disappearing from the world's air routes. What a beauty!
