a great airliner for pilots, airline accountants and paying passengers for many years and millions of revenue miles. Hate to see good friends leave the party too soon.........

Adios, Angry Puppies. You did good.

I don't know, there was always something reassuring about a salt & pepper haired driver in the front left seat, and a pair of salt & pepper haired JT-8D's out back. Good dog! <tosses a treat>

What an anticlimactic end to such an amazing airplane era...wish it had received a proper send off like Delta did for the L1011 and 747..end of an era of a workhorse in the USA

No more Atlanta “dog pound”....end of an era of DC-9 types flying out of ATL, so sad.

Nostalgia abounds. But as a passenger I always hated flying them. Good riddance, I say.

They are still flying the 717. Was that not a derivative?

The 717 is just another model of the DC-9. -10s -30s, -50s, -80s, -90s. All the same bird. Some differences of course, e.g. length, pax capacity, engines, etc. but all DC-9s. And all of them (and me) growing old.

The 717 had hydraulic spoilers compared to torsion bars, glass cockpits and a much better vacuum toilet system compared to the individual toilet tanks and pumps. All were tight, hard to work on and like all Douglas designed aircraft built like a battleship!

The 717 was a derivative of the DC-9

MD80s, MD90, 717 (was MD95): all derived from DC9

The FAA's DC-9 type certificate data sheet is A6WE. That's the official type designation data. There is no DC-9-95. The official DC-9 list goes from the MD-90-30 to the 717-200. Note also that on the FAA's official type designation data there is no B, DC, or MD in front of 717-200. All that can be found here; https://rgl.faa.gov/.

As an aside when a pilot takes their type rating ride in any DC-9 whether a -10 -90 or the 717 their certificate is amended to read DC-9. See https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/Ac61-89e.pdf.

So sad... Not only is it the end of an era for the Mad Dogs, but I never got a chance to fly on ANY MD-80 variant. This literally makes me so upset I never got that opportunity :(
