I am sure the experts will, as usual, find a way to refute what I am saying, but I beleive that the DC-9s belonging to NW and which were rebuilt at the AC facility now have composite floors as well. A friend of mine who worked on that line told me that the panels used were honeycomb. (whether metal or composite, I am not sure). Then again, DC-9s are not Boeing. > -The 777 uses more composites than any other Boeing air- > liner. Less than most military planes, of course, > and probably less than some Airbuses.
