Hawaiian Airlines  McDonnell Douglas DC-9-51  N709HA     (c/n  47764)


                                     This shot says it all.....the sun, the surf, and a stretched DC-9 barreling out of Kahului Airport.  This
                                     evocative image was taken by Joe Pries - The ATR Team in February of 2001. The DC-9s have
                                     now all been put out to pasture (many of them, including this one are languishing away in the Mohave
                                     Desert - I guess there is no market for 25 year old relatively unsophisticated airliners).
