Let's take a look at the overhead panel! "Hell yeah!", I hear you say. It is after all the nerve center of the aircraft. Nothing goes in the aircraft until you consult the overhead panel first.
The Flight Center is the starting point for all aircraft administration, dispatch, options, training and failure simulation. You can also access the Navigation Simulator and the live schematic system views from the Flight Center.
Mike Dart of ProFsxVideos on Youtube has posted a comprehensive and detailed four-part full flight video series featuring the DC-9 Classic. Mike takes us along on a short range flight in the DC-9 Classic from Hannover to Nuremberg, Germany.
The DC-9 wings were designed to be fast on cruise and perform well on short runways. The final wing design was the optimal combination of wing-sweep angle, 24 degree sweep back at the center chord, and wing thickness to yield the lowest operating cost for a given cruise speed (M.80), payload-range ability and field length requirements. Designed to provide a stable, sturdy and reliable airplane structure, the all metal wing was produced to withstand the stress of frequent takeoffs and landings which jets operating short haul endure.
