McDonnell Douglas' MD-80 began life in the late 1970s as a stretched out, re-engined version of the DC-9. With further modifications, such as a lengthened wingspan, it first flew in 1979 as the DC-9-80. Four years and several improvements later, the aircraft took to the air as the MD-80 with which aviation buffs and jet travelers today are familiar. This color history includes coverage of the entire series, of which more than 1,000 are currently in service with airlines around the world. More than 150 photographs and illustrations are accompanied by design, production, and service histories sure to satisfy even the most avid civil aviation enthusiasts.
