  • HISTORY ASPECTS:
  • The TWA Boeing 717, registered as N418TW, holds a significant place in the history of American aviation. TWA, or Trans World Airlines, was an iconic airline that played a crucial role in shaping the commercial airline industry. The Boeing 717, a twin-engine, single-aisle jet, was a workhorse for TWA during its years of operation.
  • The Boeing 717 is an American five-abreast single-aisle airliner produced by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. The twin-engine airliner was developed for the 100-seat market and originally marketed by McDonnell Douglas in the early 1990s as the MD-95 until the company merged with Boeing in August 1997. It was a shortened derivative of McDonnell Douglas' successful airliner, the MD-80, and part of the company's broader DC-9 family. Capable of seating up to 134 passengers, the 717 has a design range of 2,060 nautical miles [nmi] (3,820 km; 2,370 mi). It is powered by two Rolls-Royce BR715 turbofan engines mounted at the rear of the fuselage.
  • The first order for the airliner was placed with McDonnell Douglas in October 1995 by ValuJet Airlines (later AirTran Airways). With the 1997 merger taking place prior to production, the airliner entered service in 1999 as the Boeing 717. Production of the type ceased in May 2006 after 155 were delivered. As of June 2022, 103 Boeing 717 airliners remain in service and have recorded zero fatalities and no hull losses.
  • Trans World Airlines (TWA) was a major airline in the United States that operated from 1930 until 2001 when it was acquired by American Airlines. It was formed as Transcontinental & Western Air to operate a route from New York City to Los Angeles via St. Louis, Kansas City, and other stops, with Ford Trimotors. With American, United, and Eastern, it was one of the "Big Four" domestic airlines in the United States formed by the Spoils Conference of 1930.
  • This particular aircraft, with its registration N418TW, served TWA with distinction, shuttling passengers to various destinations across the United States. Its livery, featuring TWA's classic red and white colors, was a familiar sight at airports in the 1990s and early 2000s. For many travelers, it represents a sense of nostalgia, harkening back to a time when air travel was a glamorous and exciting adventure.
  • Now, aviation enthusiasts and collectors have the opportunity to own a piece of this aviation history with the 1:200 scale model. Whether you have fond memories of flying with TWA or simply appreciate the beauty of classic airliners, this model is a must-have addition to your aviation memorabilia.
