T is for Trainer

A former Northwest Airlines DC-9-30 sits perennially exposed to the elements on the Minneapolis airport field. It is now a training aircraft used by the airport police and fire departments. It stopped flying after it was heavily damaged by a fuel truck that collided with it in 2005. The driver of the fuel truck fell asleep at the wheel and impacted the nose section of the aircraft, prompting Northwest to scrap the airframe.
