What went wrong /n/?
>>
Not being as good of a platform for growth as the 737 or A320. All things considered the MD-80 still did fairly well.
>>
>built for 20 years, then developed into the Boeing 717 and built for another 8 years
Nothing apparently.
>>
>Started as the DC-9 in the early 60s
>Then evolved in the MD-80 in the 80s
>Then as the MD-90 in the 90s
>And finally became the 717 in 2000
>Some Diesel 9 and Maddogs might keep flying as freight dogs until 2060
Nothing went wrong anon, another wonder and success from Douglas that stood the test of time

if only the MD-90 was able to establish itself before Boeing took over.

Not only wrong oil, but wasn't even filled to 1/3rd of capacity. Faggot was too lazy to sit there for 45 minutes to fill the fucker.
>>
>>1729322
based MD-80 punishing bad maintenance practices.
>>
>>1722670
nothing.

How the fuck are their 2 MD-80 threads. Granted I don't know shit, and only know them cause of the jackscrew "scandal". So its the beta cassette of planes. BFD.
