On December 21, 1999, the Boeing Plant held a ceremony attended by 1000 employees and other guests. Trans World Airlines (TWA) Inc. took delivery of the last MD-80 to come off the twinjet production line on December 23.

The MD-80 is one of the most successful airplane programs in commercial aviation history. Douglas Aircraft, McDonnell Douglas and Boeing delivered 1,191 MD-80s from 1979 to 1999. More than 1,180 are still in service with more than 50 domestic and foreign airlines. The final MD-80, an MD-83 model featuring non-stop range of approximately 2,880 statute miles, brings to 102 the number of MD-80 twinjets operated by TWA.

The first MD-80 also known as DC-9 Series 80, or Super 80, made its initial flight on Oct. 18, 1979. Less than a year later, on Sept. 13, 1980, Swissair took the first delivery. The airplane entered passenger service the following month. TWA took delivery of its first MD-80 and an MD-82 on April 18, 1983.

The MD-80 is the quiet, clean and modern successor to the popular DC-9.
