This is a VERY misleading thread.

They are really Republic DC-9s that were acquired by Northwest Orient.

Very true. My Uncle’s career was defined by that ‘merger’ - He never got off the -9 all the way up to his retirement in ‘07.

In reality, Orient was always just a paint job. The airline‘s actual name never changed. Northwest had the same name from the Spoils Conference until the merger with Delta.

Love it. Takes me back. I was eating Eagle Snacks Cheese Crunch and drinking warm coke at the airport back then. Spent hours just watching airplanes takeoff and land. Even though I fly for a living now, just the sight of those times brings back the mystery and awesomeness of flying.
