Additionally, I just found out that the solar glasses I purchased on Amazon are likely fake and I c...

Re: DC9-87 Fire Protection Aircraft

The aircraft is not a "DC-9-87". Only the series 83 and lower were certified as DC-9s. Aircraft after the 83 series were certified as McDonnell Douglas (MD-87, MD-88, and MD-90).

Re: VS21 (A333) Diverts from IAD to PHL - Weather?

For every question like this in this forum, before posting one should always:

3. Check the flight status on the airline's website (most show the aircraft type).

Most of the time this will answer their question right there and avoid these kinds of topics.
