Succint details of the DC9-15 & 20 variants are given in the International Directory of Civil Aircraft 1997/98 published by Aerospace Publications in Australia (ISBN 1 875671 26 9). "The DC-9-20 featured the DC-9-10's fuselage with the -30's more powerful engines and longer span wings, giving better hot and high performance. The DC-9-15 was basically a -10 but with more fuel and higher weights." "976 DC-9s of all models (were) built including 137 -10s, 10 -20s and 662 -30s including military C-9s." Hope that this is of assistance. Cass Alexander -- Posted using Reference.COM http://www.reference.com Browse, Search and Post Usenet and Mailing list Archive and Catalog.
