The MD80 Family: Connoisseurs and fans affectionately dubbed it “Mad Dog”. Its other nickname, “Super 80”, was even used in adverts: “Have a super day”, “The Super 80’s are coming!” or “Super 80 for the Eighties” were the slogans the MD80 embarked on its high-flying career to in the eighties.
In the eighties and nineties, the MD80 gained cult status at American Airlines. Now Aviationtag is proud to present an exclusive series officially licensed by American Airlines crafted from one of the aircrafts!
The N922TW was completed on 26 July 1981 as an MD81 and initially took to the skies for Swissair before it was taken over by Trans World Airlines (TWA) in 1997 and converted into an MD82. In 2001 it was transferred to American Airlines – along with the rest of TWA.
In April 2003 it landed in Roswell, New Mexico, which was to be its last stop. Now its fuselage is being given a new purpose: as a limited-edition Aviationtag. The series is officially licensed by American Airlines and, thanks to almost 20 years of retirement basking in the desert sun of New Mexico, has a unique retro look, in some cases even sporting major scratches.
