Our limited-edition DC-9 series shares DNA with one of the 20th century’s aviation legends. The Douglas DC-9 30 was introduced onto the market in 1966 as the first American short-distance jet and went on to be a resounding success. To this very day it stands for reliability and dependability. This incredible era ended in 2014 with the last passenger flight for a major US airline.
Many years of exposure to the blistering heat of the Californian sun have changed the structure of the DC-9’s coating. So we completely removed the coating by hand to uncover the pure aluminium skin.

Note: Every tag is unique. Depending on the plane, tags may vary in terms of haptics, material thickness and colour. Small blemishes bear witness to the plane’s long history and are an authentic reminder of its glory days over the clouds.
The McDonnell Douglas DC-9 is a twin-engine, single-aisle jet airliner by the US manufacturer Douglas Aircraft Company. It was designed for short and medium-haul flights. The two engines mounted directly on the fuselage provide enhanced aerodynamics and make the plane easier to handle in the event of engine failure. The DC-9 30 is almost 4.5 m longer than the original design and can carry up to 139 passengers. The elongated wings and innovative slat and flap system enable take-off and landing on short runways.
