McDonnell Douglas DC-9
The McDonnell Douglas DC-9 is an American twin turbofan, narrow-bodied, short to medium range airliner. It first flew on February 25, 1965, and entered service in December with Delta Air Lines. It is designed to operate from short runways with less ground infrastructure. In US military service the type received the designation of C-9. Built-in several variants, production ended in 1982 with 976 built. Developed into the MD-80, MD-90 and finally the Boeing 717.
The fuselage is a semi-monocoque aluminium alloy structure with built-in airstairs. The low mounted sweep back wings and T-tail are also cantilever metal structures. The retractable undercarriage is a tricycle type mount to the wings and folds inwards into the fuselage; the steerable nose wheel retracts rearward. Flight crew consists of a pilot and copilot. Seats 80 to 139 passengers depending on variant and seating arrangement.
It is powered by two Pratt & Whitney JT8D low-bypass turbofan engines mounted on the tail giving the DC-9-30 a cruise speed of 907 km/h (564 mph), a maximum speed of 926 km/h (575 mph), a 10,670 m (35,000 ft) service ceiling and a range of 3,095 km (1923 mi).
