    Mmmmmmmm, shiny things....if you look real close at the reflection on the undernose, you can make out a row of parked cars. I'm in that row. Selfie! This MD-80 is Ship 426 which corresponds with tail number N426AA, delivered in November 1986 to American.

Built in December 1992, she was to go to CAAC, the Chinese state airline, but was cancelled and instead went to TWA. She's one of a handful of ex-TWA MD-80s still flying for American and ...
