Airframe specifications provided by Planespotters.net.
DC-9-30 airframe number 926 was originally commissioned by Texas International Airlines. It was delivered to the company in 1979 and quickly was merged into the Continental fleet when the two airlines became one. The airplane would serve with three other airlines, Air Aruba, PLM International and Aero California before earning it's retirement 21 years later in 2000.
The model is in pretty good shape, but I do take issue with an unsightly bend on the port side wing. There is also so sloppy painting on the port side engine intake. Other than that, things really aren't bad at all. This is a nice tribute to an age far gone in U.S. aviation.
