JAX to DFW on the venerable MD88

JAX to DFW on the venerable MD88. No music, just raw, as recorded, sounds.

Filmed on my phone camera which started acting up just after reaching cruise. So after initial take off the video sadly skips to our approach.

Nice one Sandy, that zinging noise on the take-off roll is just brilliant. Old steam gauge aeries the best :champion:

Nice, do miss those Maddogs! Just one active left on the ZS-register, ZS-TRJ of Gryphon currently away with Tunis Air.

Also only a handful or two left in Europe. Quickly disappearing with American, but assume it will take some time before Delta get rid of all theirs. Especially if you count the MD95/B717.

Funny enough my only ever flight on the MD88 also involved JAX, flew Atalanta to Jacksonville on N953DL back in 2005.

Had made an attempt to get on an Iberia one years earlier but ran into an equipment chance to an A320 :wallbash:
