Cool article about yesterday’s simultaneous retirement of 20 of American Airlines MD-80 fleet, including 3 license built by SAIC in China for TWA. Gonna miss these - while they were noisy in the back they were faster than the Boeings and Airbuses replacing them. Apparently they’re a bit underpowered and the stubbier wing and wing layout makes them a handful to fly, but they were well built airplanes.
