McDonnell Douglas MD-90
The McDonnell Douglas MD-90 is an American twin turbofan, narrow-bodied, short to medium range airliner. It first flew on February 22, 1993, entering service in early 1995 with Delta Air Lines. It is designed to operate from short runways with less ground infrastructure.
Developed from the MD-80, itself evolved from the DC-9, it has a lengthened fuselage and high bypass turbofan engines. Manufactured in two main variants, the -30 and the -30ER with a higher maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) and range. After Boeing and McDonnell Douglas merged in 1997 new sales for the MD-90 ceased due to competition with the Boeing 737. The final commercial flight of the MD-90 took place on June 2, 2020, with Delta Air Lines, the last major operator of the type. Production ended in 2000 with 116 built.
Airframe construction is mainly of aluminium alloy with a semi-monocoque fuselage with built-in airstairs, the low mounted wings and T-tail assembly are of cantilever design with sweep back. The retractable undercarriage is a tricycle type mount to the wing roots, folding inwards into the fuselage; the steerable nose wheel retracts rearward. Flight crew consists of a pilot and copilot, and the passenger cabin typically seats 153 to 172, depending on the cabin configuration.
It is powered by two IAE V2500 high bypass turbofan axial flow engines mounted on pylons, one on each side of the rear fuselage. The MD-90-30 a cruise speed of 812 km/h (504 mph), an 11,278 m (37,000 ft) service ceiling and a range of 3,787 km (2,353 mi).
