  • This was my last takeoff on N907DL since it was just retired today. It was one of the original MD82's delivered to Delta in 1987. I'm glad I hopped on this bird while I could.

  • The holidays are some of the busiest travel days of the year. Today happens to be the second busiest day in the year for Delta Air Lines. Where do you like to go for the holidays? I occasionally travel to Long Island for Christmas to see family.

  • Getting as many photos as I can of our original MD82's. I've only been able to go on three out of the original 8 that were first delivered. Ship's 901-903 were returned to their lessors in 2007. Ship's 904, 906, and 908 were retired recently leaving 905 and 907. I really want these birds to stick around. They are such incredible airplanes!

  • Felt a little artsy this past week. I always loved seeing the maddogs T tail sticking up through the terminal windows.

  • Headed back to ATL tonight on one of the original MD80's delivered to Delta! This is one of the MD82's Delta first had delivered back in 1987 before getting upgraded to an MD88. But the registration plate still says DC-9-82 so I still call it an MD82. 33E is my seat on DL2567!

  • The bucket reversers look and sound so awesome. Getting to hear full reversers while sitting next to the engines is so awesome to hear!

  • I’m probably not the only one missing these silver birds right now. There's few other planes out there that gave me as much of a rush as catching my favorite aircraft. Here's a video as well just to hear the awesome sound of the JT8D's😍

  • Ship 972 loading up at Terminal E!  Throughout all of October the ATL control tower was lit up pink for breast cancer awareness month. Did you know that this is the tallest control tower in all of the US? I would love to see the view from the top someday!

  • Hard to believe it's nearly been a year since since I've taken a lot of these S80 photos. I've still got plenty of maddog photos to post though😉

  • 4YL has been stored at DFW's maintenance hangar since September 4 following the retirement of the Super 80 fleet at American. They used this bird for de icing training for ramp workers over the past month. Now unfortunately, she's on her way to Roswell today. It really sucks that it would not be staying at DFW. After today, DFW won't be seeing the MD80 for the first time in about 37 years.

  • Super 80 getting pushed into the maintenance stand at Tech Ops! For those who have paid attention to my posts, what varient of the MD80 does registration plate say this bird is?

  • The T-Tail on the maddog is so cool to see. I love how the elevators lift into the up position. Something you won't see on modern aircraft.

  • Today is the 40th anniversary for the DC-9-Super 80! To this day, the MD80 is still flying for dozens of carriers across the world. American’s might not be in service, but plenty will get a second life carrying cargo or continue flying passengers all over the world! Let’s give a happy birthday to the Super 80!

  • Gone, but not forgotten. I think it's safe to say the Super 80 has cemented itself into aviation history for how long it's been serving the skies and outliving many who were to replace it. Think of the maddog as you want, but it has been one hell of a workhorse for 40 years this month.
