Sightings: Columbus Blue Jackets DC-9-32 in St. Louis

By Carmelo Turdo
The Columbus Blue Jackets hockey team was in town again yesterday to play the red-hot St. Louis Blues (the Blues won 6-2).  The team's aircraft, a 1979 McDonnell Douglas DC-9-32, was hosted by Jet Aviation at St. Louis Downtown Airport just across the Mississippi River from the Scottrade Center venue in downtown St. Louis.  The venerable DC-9, in its 35th year of service, still looked great in the morning sunshine prior to the arrival of the severe winter weather last evening.  St. Louis Downtown Airport has become the destination of choice for hockey teams using their own aircraft or Air Canada A319 charters over the last few years.  The Aero Experience is proud to be part of the airport community, and we bring to you some views of the Blue Jackets aircraft:
