Has Delta Scheduled Their Final DC-9 Flight for January 6, 2014?

Submitted
In 1965, the very first McDonnell Douglas DC-9 was delivered to Delta Air Lines. The aircraft flew its first passenger flight on December 8, 1965 from Atlanta to Memphis. Now 48 years later, the final DC-9 flight, operated by a major U.S. airline, has been scheduled for January 6, 2014. (airchive.com) More...

Hugh Hefner had a DC-9-32 in the early 70's. Solid black exterior with a big bunny tail. Now that was a great airplane! A flight from Chicago to LA seemed so short. Aboard it was strictly business, but after it landed it sometimes took hours to get home.
