McDonnell Douglas DC-9 Series 50

The McDonnell Douglas DC-9 is a single-aisle airliner designed and manufactured by the Douglas Aircraft Company. The design originated as an effort to create a smaller variant similar to the larger DC-8, which possessed significantly greater size and capacity. The initial design featured two rear-mounted Pratt & Whitney JT8D turbofans under the T-tail, allowing for a cleaner wing design and incorporating airstairs into the fuselage. The latest addition to the DC-9 family was the Series 50, specifically the DC-9-51 model. This became the largest aircraft in the series, accommodating up to 139 passengers due to a further extended fuselage. The cabin was modernized, and the aircraft received small improvements such as modified thrust reversers and fins installed below the side cockpit.

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, all meticulously designed to meet the specific requirements of McDonnell Douglas DC-9 Series 50 aircraft.
