Spanair McDonnell Douglas MD-82 EC-HFT Sunspirit (14244)

Spanair McDonnell Douglas MD-82 EC-HFT is entering runway 18 for an intersection departure.

 

It carries the typical Spanish name "Sunspirit". ;-)

 

This is flight JK126 to Madrid.

 

You can see line number 1690 of all DC-9/MD-80/-90 built aircraft. It was delivered to China Eastern 30.04.91 as B-2137, had the registration EI-CTF beginning 05.99 and went into service for Spanair 07.08.99.

 

This photo is unmodified. In the highest resolution you can see something in the left navigation window that was not intended to be there...at least the manufacturer did not deliver this as a spare part... ;-)

 

This is one of nine MD-82 that Spanair was operating until today (20.08.08) - one of them (EC-HFP) was involved into a severe accident in Madrid Barajas (flight JK5022) that has caused a terrible death toll of more than 150 passengers and crew members.
