DC-9 Airliner

The McDonnell Douglas DC-9 features two rear fuselage-mounted engines, small, highly efficient wings and a T-tail. The airplane seats 80 to 135 passengers depending on version and seating arrangement. The DC-9 was designed for frequent, short flights. The final DC-9 was delivered in October 1982.

The DC-9-based airliners, MD-80, MD-90 and Boeing 717 later followed in production. With the final deliveries of the 717 in 2006, production of the DC-9/MD-80/90/717 aircraft family ceased after 41 years and over 2,400 units built.
