Default Did Valujet...

ever fly the DC-9-10/-15 series?

I know they flew the -20 and -30 series. I need to know for an upcoming model build. I have a Flying Fish resin DC-9-15 coming in and would like to do either a Valujet bird or Continental Golden Jet bird. Since I can only find decals for the valujet, it appears that will be the one.

Thanks for the help...

No, they never flew the shorty. Most of their early DC-9's were from Delta. -30's. How about Air West or Hughes AirWest? So many good choices in the shorty...NOT CRITTER!!

I'm willing to do almost ANY U.S. airline in this shorty -9...providing I can find the decals for it! They seem to be hard to find, unless I find a -30 decal and cut it down...

Is that the ones with the bi-coloured tails?

Dylan, old buddy...
I think you'd have to agree that the DC-9-21 is just as much a shorty DC-9 as a -14 or a -15. I know it's a technicality but still.

I sure wish Delta and Northwest had operated the hotrod -21!

Damn Don, I completely forgot they operated the-21....and it would indeed qualify for a shorty. Bigger engines and wing, I have an old Airliners magazine talking about SAS and their retirement of the type. It sure was a little hot-rod!
