OUR MOST RECENT AIRCRAFT
In 2002 -after 52,000 hours flying since 1974- it arrived at our museum to finally rest, where it displays its similarities with most modern aircraft. It was so popular in fact, that 2,400 DC9s were made, making it the most popular jet-powered aircraft behind the 7,000 units of the Airbus 320 family, and the 9,000 Boeing 737s.
By itself it weighs 26 tonnes, and it can take-off with another 24 tonnes of fuel, passengers and luggage. It can fly at 560 miles per hour, to any point within a 2,000 mile radius (Málaga to Stockholm), consuming up to 3,000 gallons of fuel.
Come inside and explore the flight attendant's galleys, the first-class seats, and sit at the flight deck; remember that it's still undergoing constant restoration, but we welcome you to carefully explore its delicate aircraft controls.
