Re: American Airlines MD-80 Retirement Discussion Thread

So what ended up being the final flight for N501AA? N501AA flew from LBB as AA2232... it's actually sitting in TUL now and not ROW... along with N9621A.... not sure why those went to TUL and not ROW, they might be getting them prepared for something special. Maybe someone here knows why... Employee...

I know the A359's MLG are " toe down " but I'm wondering if the A35J' s 6 wheel
bogies will be toe up like the 777's or toe down like their sister ?


The inboard MLG on the A380 are also 3 truck bogies (6 wheel) but are toe down so that could give a preview of the A35J.
