Really cool.   I flew on many of those on TWA< COA, & AAL in the day.   Not that particular a/c however.    I did fly PHL-STL on a TWA only 3 days ole once.    N962TW was delivered on July 19, 1999 and my flight #487 was on July 22, 1999.

I actually got a little emotional at the takeoff.  I spent quite a bit of time on TWA Maddogs back in the day.

I'll post some pictures when I get home later on which I took last week in DFW when I was riding the MD80 for the last time, since AA80 was oversold there was no chance of getting on it

July22, 1000????  My, you're much older than I thought.    ??? ;D :D

20 years ago I was singing to a confirmation at the local cathedral. The pastor had made the program and written that it was August 1000 instead of 1999. Well. Everyone in the cathedral was in a time machine and wasn't returned to the present until the pastor said that he had made a mistake and written the year wrong. Everyone laughed and that was it. Most people hadn't noticed it at all..

I did feel about 999 year older than I was at that time :P

I've parked a bunch of AA MD80's (among others) over at Roswell, so they never have to leave my sim. Just a quick job messing around, I knew I shouldn't have deleted my old livery 757's.

Dave,

Aren't most of American B737 MAX8 in Roswell now? I didn't know. I thought they stayed in DFW or Seattle Boeing Field.

Did any of you see the really nice in house going away party TUL MX did for the MD-80?  It was sweet!!!!  I've been saying to anyone who would listen lately how badly we need an MD-80 on a stick in front of the new headquarters building in Dallas.  ;)

That sounds like the SAS farewell. But they decided to not even include one DC-9/MD-80/MD-87 at the SAS Museum somewhere in Norway. All the MD-80's were sent to the USA for part scrapping or to be flown by other airlines. Not even one were left back here. Money talks and even memories is not important enough compared to money.
