American Airlines is the largest operator of the MD-80 (McDonnell Douglas) twinjet aircraft. The MD-80 airplane is really the backbone of the American Airlines fleet with having flown over 270 MD-80 series aircraft. American took its delivery of its first MD-80 in May of 1983 and often refers to the airplane as the Super 80 or SP80. As of 1997 American Airlines had 649 airplanes in its fleet, and, of those aircraft, 250 were MD-80s.
The American Airlines MD-80 model 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.
