Douglas DC-9

 

For short-range flights Douglas developed the DC-9. The fuselage was stretched three times as the airlines needed more capacity. Production was terminated in favour of the MD-80 after the completion of 976 aircraft.

This DC-9 model is a compact plane providing an elegant look in the air. The installation of an 3-axis gyro is recommended.
