Right in the middle of a runway change at SLC I asked a HughesAir DC-9 if he could make it straight-in to 34L. (He thought he was 60 miles from 16R, I knew he was 35 miles from 34L <G>).

He replied: "Affirmative! But there is serious doubt that we will be able to bring the airplane with us."




There is a huge difference between 'can' and 'should'. But the -9 could come down like a brick.

I jumpseated over to BHM one day on a Southern DC-9. I had been flying the 737 at PI and we came roaring into BHM when ATC cleared the guy for a visual. We were high, fast and right on top of the field. I started laughing and the Capt asked me what was so funny. I told him we would be half way to Biloxi in the 737 before we could turn base with all the energy he had.

Speedbrakes went out, gear came out and we dropped like a rock.. AND spooled up on final.

The gear on the Boeings was limited to 270kts.. and it was 320 on the McDougs. First flaps on the Boeing was around 230 (newer ones ..210 on older) while it was 280 on the DC-9/MD-80.

It is a hard concept to explain to people who don't fly that the ability to slow down quickly is really a good asset.
