A lot of aircraft are visible in this shot and they're all the same type except for one. Also looks good at night

A nice mixture of new and old colors of a place at my hometown airport I like to call "deaf row".

A great view of Northwest's legendary DC-9 lineup (with the Airbus included), some in the old paint scheme, others in the new one. The new McNamara Terminal is a vast improvement over the old Davey Terminal. And there are even landing lights in the distance; more DC-9s coming in to join their brethren?!

Great photo. I love it and, it's my favorite airline of all time! Love those classic DC-9s. They look so shiny in the airport lights, especially the old livery. We here in Winnipeg get quite a few DC-9s at
YWG bound for MSP/ Minneapolis/ St.Paul. New livery and old. But definetly not as shiny.

P.S. We sometimes get the odd flight on NWA to Detroit. Winnipeg is a smaller city though POP: 650,000 or something around that. This ones on my desktop!

Greetings from YWG/ Winnipeg!
4 stars!

Being from Michigan, I've seen my share of DTW and Northwest Airlines, but this is one of the best pictures I've ever seen.

This is a very wonderful shot! I love the fact that its night, and just how many DC-9s there are!

It's like staring into a hall of mirrors... Better yet, it's "Where's Waldo?" for planes! The 320's well out of sight, too. Well done!

What struck me was the number of aircat on the production line.the fact is that yoy have full order books. this could have happened over sixty years ago with first jet airliner that your country ever produced hadit have been produced at that time, the avro c102. but that is another though very sad story. yours faithfully robert briggs, 123 factory road hinckley leicestershire le1o odp uk..
