The DC-9 came off the Douglas Aircraft production line in Long Beach, California in 1965 - just one more amazing design from the unrivaled Douglas aircraft lineage. Douglas Aircraft designed and produced dozens of incredible wartime aircraft, as well as a succession of popular passenger jets including their workhorse, the DC-9. The rich yellow, orange, red, and wine colors were intended to evoke images of sunny Baja California Sur, the home of the airlines' headquarters in La Paz, Mexico from 1960 - 2008.
Designed mainly for short to medium routes and servicing smaller airfields, the DC-9 was not dependent on ground services that these airports lacked; it featured its own auxiliary power and built-in airstairs. The DC-9-30 variant sported a longer fuselage, extended wing tips, and was built to compete with the Boeing 737. A total of 662 DC 9-30s were assembled.
-Authentic - made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal.
-Unique - each PlaneTag bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags.
-Collectible - each one is numbered in a limited edition and comes attached to a display card.
-Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display.
