Image of - McDonnell Douglas MD-80

The MD-80 was lengthened and updated from the DC-9 and was first introduced into commercial service on October 10, 1980 by Swissair. The development of the MD-80 series began in the 1970s as a lengthened, growth version of the DC-9-50 with a higher maximum take-off weight (MTOW) and a higher fuel capacity. The MD-80 is a mid-size, medium-range airliner. McDonnell Douglas built 779 MD-80s during the 20-year production run.

Everts Air Cargo was the launch customer for the first freighter conversion of an MD-80, receiving the first conversion in the spring of 2013. The conversion was done from Miami, Florida-based Aeronautical Engineers (AEI).

In the fall of 2019, Everts Air Cargo received the certification from the FAA for an MD-80 simulator located in Fairbanks, AK. Read more:
