MD-80 Model Planes – The MD-80 Jet is a twin engine commercial aircraft that was popular with its introduction in the 1980s. McDonnell Douglas Aircraft manufactured the MD-80 for Alaska Airlines which flew to 92 cities in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Looking for larger, more fuel efficient aircraft, Alaska Airlines has since retired its fleet of MD-80s and is expanding to the Boeing 737-900 aircraft.
The Alaska Airlines MD-80 is crafted from pressure cast composite resin and is a striking aviation gift. This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced using exact blueprint specifications. Each model is meticulously hand painted giving the aircraft a deep, rich finish. The result is a museum quality sculpture to be admired and is a magnificent collectible. The model is fully assembled and arrives with a display base.
