Douglas DC-9 First Flight

On February 25th, 1965, the Douglas DC-9 made its first flight. Designed to be a workhorse, the DC-9 design evolved over time and as a part of three different companies (Douglas, McDonnell Douglas and Boeing). Later variants included the MD-80, MD-90 and Boeing 717. Production of the DC-9/MD-80/90/717 family came to a close after almost 2,500 units were built over 41 years.
