McDonnell Douglas MD83

This gleaming MD83 in Chicago shows the American Airlines polished aluminum livery at its finest.  I love the eyebrow windows, allowing the pilots a view upwards.

The Super 80 is a successor to the DC-9, and has been in turn superseded by the 717 now that Boeing owns McDonnell Douglas.  This line of jet aircraft has been very successful, with around 2400 delivered since its development in the 1960s.
