TULSA, Oklahoma -- American Airlines has parked an MD-80, N451AA, on the ramp at their Tulsa Maintenance Base. The engines are plugged and the American logo has been stripped from the aircraft.
According to the tail number, the plane is actually an MD-82, another model of the MD-80 series.
The plane will land at Tulsa's Jones Riverside Airport (RVS) next month, en route to a permanent stop at Tulsa Technology Center. Tulsa Tech says American Airlines is donating the aircraft for use by students in their aircraft maintenance training programs.
