American Airlines MD-82 - "Mad Dog"
Posted by Paulius Aganauskas on
We are excited to introduce you to the latest Aviationtag made from former American Airlines MD-82 Aircraft. In the eighties and nineties, the MD-80 gained cult status at American Airlines. This particular aircraft was completed on 26 July 1981 as an MD-81 and initially took to the skies for Swissair before it was taken over by Trans World Airlines (TWA) in 1997 and later converted into an MD-82, more developed version of MD-80 . MD-82 was slightly heavier and offered a better range of up to 3789 kilometres thanks to its JT8D-217 or 219 engines. In 2001 it was transferred to it's final owner - American Airlines.
In April 2003 American Airlines MD-82 with registration N922TW landed in Roswell, New Mexico, which was to be its last stop. Now its fuselage is being given a new purpose: as a limited-edition Aviationtag. The series is officially licensed by American Airlines and, thanks to almost 20 years of retirement basking in the desert sun of New Mexico, has a unique retro look, in some cases even sporting major scratches.
