These were shot on two different flights on two different airplanes. The first 3 were shot on a SABE-SASA-SABE flight on LV-AYD (MD-83) operated by Austral Lineas Aereas. The last ones were shot on a ferry flight on LV-WFN (MD-81) also operated by Austral Lineas Aereas. That was a special occasion as the MD-80 fleet will cease operations by April 9th, and LV-WFN was delivered on 01/08/1981 together with LV-WPY (scrapped a few years ago) brand new to this same airline. After 70,444.5 flight hours, WFN will not fly again.

It was a very emotional experience for all of us who work at the airline... seeing this bird go was strange. We were sad to see it go but we are happy that it will make room for the new airplanes we are operating.

Nice work, it's always sad to retire a serviceable aircraft knowing it will never fly again:(

These are all nice. I think you did an especially nice job in balancing the exposure in #1. Is that HDR?

I absolutely love the DC-9/MD-8x series. Douglas got it right with that design.

I was going to say the same thing.

Nice pics.

This is a good set.

The DC-9, durable but loud! Still a few of them flying from KMSP.

Just the way it should be. The greater the ability to turn dead dinosaurs into noise, the higher the aircraft ranks on my list of favorites.

took a lot of trips on the old AC DC-9's back in the day. Loud and proud.

No, it isn't HDR... I edited it in LR4 but it didn't require much tweaking in the first place!

Hmmm, having worked at Douglas Aircraft / McDD in Long Beach back when (1986-1989), it's kind of sad. I was involved with the MD-11 not the MD-80s/90s, but at lunch I used to walk up and down the flight line where these planes were checked and readied for delivery. The best part of the job was being around all these aircraft.

Very nice. Never really saw a shot of an actual cockpit before. There sure are a lot of buttons and switches and such. Really like #2 with the panel all lit up.
