Painted up for this Lockheed publicity photo with the fake registration NC70000. It had originally been delivered to the USAAF, then used by TWA for crew training with the civil registration NC54214 (also as NX54214) . Passed back to the USAAF and finally sold to TWA (as N54214) in August 1951 with just 180 hours on the clock. Photo from: Civil Aviation Historical Society, Melbourne, Australia
A quiet time for this DC-9 that was delivered to Eastern Airlines June 25, 1968. Sold to Aeron Aviation Resources after Eastern ceased operations in January 1991, the aircraft was leased to Midway Airlines from July to November 1991. It was stored at Mojave CA until sold to Northwest Airlines in July 1992. Northwest flew it (except for a short two month storage storage at Marana, AZ in September - November 2008) into the merger with Delta Airlines, who finally withdrew it from service in January 2010.
