Finnair's DC-9 Fleet In The Mid-90s

Tue Jan 29, 2013 11:36 pm

Hello again, everyone...

Looking for some more help.

I was looking at some old timetables from the mid-1990s that show Finnair flights operated by "D9S" equipment.

I know that, usually, "D9S" indicates the DC-9-30 or DC-9-40 model, however all of the photos of Finnair's DC-9 aircraft in the anet database for the 1990s show ONLY DC-9-50s.

Was Finnair only operating DC-9-50s in the 90s?

Thanks in advance for your help!

They still had a few DC-9-41s until around 1995/96. Photos below all dated 1995.

Argh! How did I miss those??? Thanks, Viscount!

Does anyone have any idea if they were still around in 1996?

That was the timetable I was looking at.

Finnair retired their last five DC-9-41s during 1995/96. The DC-9-51s were retired a decade ago, or so.
