Part of the DC-9 family of aircraft, the MD-80 series airliner flies mid-range flights for a number of different airlines around the world. The MD-80 aircraft are updates of the DC-9 airframe, and themselves have a variety of follow-on upgrades, including the MD-95/Boeing 717. Boeing merged with McDonnell Douglas in 1997, and the latest in the MD-80 line has been renamed thanks to Boeing's greater brand recognition in the airline market.
This successful airliner is rendered here in the colors of Delta Airlines. This model's paint scheme matches that of the real-world aircraft with exacting detail, and combines with a high-quality construction to produce a must-have item for any collector or enthusiast.
