This Northwest Airlink Saab 340B+ is taxiing to the gate at ATW on a wintry day. These 34-seat turboprops were regional workhorses for Northwest Airlines from the late ’90s through their merger with Delta in 2010. These aircraft flew to more than 60 small and mid-sized cities from hubs in Detroit, Minneapolis and Memphis. The B+ was the most advanced model of the Saab 340, with upgraded engines, slightly longer wings and a system to reduce engine noise in the cabin. While in the fleet, these were the only planes wearing this distinctive red color scheme. #TBT
At approximately 6:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 23, Delta flight 8867 carrying the Minnesota Vikings had a rear wheel slip off the taxiway after landing safely. The Delta crew and airport public safety teams are working on the aircraft now. As we receive more updates we will post them on our Twitter @ATWAirport.
Throwback to the days of spacious two-by-two seating and fresh-baked cookies for all on board Midwest Express! Here we have a Midwest Express MD-80 and DC-9 and a United Express BAE-146 at their gates during a snowstorm. The MD-80 (left) was a modernized stretch of the DC-9. Looking at the tails alone, it’s hard for the untrained eye to tell the difference between the two jets. The engines, vertical stabilizer (the tail) and horizontal stabilizer (small wing on the tail) are all slightly different. It has a bigger engine than the DC-9 and is mounted at a slightly different angle. The MD-80 wasn’t a frequent visitor to ATW, but Midwest did occasionally put them in our flight schedule. #TBT
