The McDonnell Douglas DC-9 is a single-aisle airliner designed and manufactured by the Douglas Aircraft Company. Conceived initially as a smaller variant akin to the larger DC-8 in size and capacity, the original design featured two rear-mounted Pratt & Whitney JT8D turbofans under the T-tail. This design choice facilitated a cleaner wing design and incorporated built-in airstairs on the fuselage. Scandinavian Airlines expressed the need for a similar aircraft with enhanced short-field performance, leading Douglas to develop the new Series 20 aircraft. Improved performance was achieved by employing re-envisioned wings and more powerful Pratt & Whitney JT8D-11 engines, as seen in the DC-9-21 and subsequent variants.
Red Box is delighted to offer an extensive range of ground power equipment for this aircraft, including tugs, ground power units, start power units and more, meticulously tailored to meet the specific requirements of McDonnell Douglas DC-9 Series 20 aircraft.
