The Last of McDonnell Douglas is sadly Dying out. I really want one more chance to fly on the 717 before Delta Retires them too.

I actually have to chuckle at this - the ship in the picture was an ex Midwest Airlines unit-I actually was on that one from an MKE to ATL leg. (I write the N-number on my ticket stubs along with picture from the terminal of the aircraft. this particular one I also have a photo of the flight deck crew holding my then-3 year old daughters little stuffed hippo up on the coaming above the instrument panel as i was de-planing from ATL. MidWest, cant forget the cookies.)
