Featured Map for 23 August 2016:
American Airlines' Dinosaur Die-off

 

This morning, American Airlines retired 20 McDonnell Douglas MD-80s (called a Super 80 by American) to Roswell, New Mexico. Final ferry flights from 16 airports started arriving at 11:08 am with the final arrival at 3:42 pm. The aircraft consisted of a dozen DC-9-82 models plus eight DC-9-83 models, the latter including three originally delivered to TWA. From a fleet that once totalled over 370 MD-80s, American is now down to just 63.

Today's Featured Map shows the final flights of the 20 retirees.
