The DC-9 came off the Douglas Aircraft production line in Long Beach, California in 1965 - just one more amazing design from the unrivaled Douglas aircraft lineage. Douglas Aircraft designed and produced dozens of incredible wartime aircraft, as well as a succession of popular passenger jets including their workhorse, the DC-9.
Designed mainly for short to medium routes and servicing smaller airfields, the DC-9 was not dependent on ground services that these airports lacked; it featured its own auxiliary power and built-in airstairs. The DC-9-30 variant sported a longer fuselage, extended wing tips, and was built to compete with the Boeing 737. A total of 662 DC 9-30s were assembled.
I ordered this partial orange/red as a gap filler in my collection (having already a dark burgundy/white combo), and it is brilliant! There is a lovely shine on the orange, where as the red part is more matte looking. The tag is also a little thicker than my other Aero California DC-9 one.
Shipping was quick and efficient too. I always appreciate the fantastic service from 9wingspirit. A big Merci Beaucoup to you!
It is a really rare tag. I appreciate for having a chance to buy it. The customer service is best.
