Together with SAS, Alitalia was the largest operator of the MD-80 outside the United States with 90 units -all of the MD-82 series- operated between 1983 and 2012.
Here are some, augmenting the original done by Eswube a few years ago:

I-DAWA: The first MD-82 delivered to the airline, in service between December 16 1983 and December 28 2008. Served with South African airline Safair in 2009 and was scrapped thereafter.
I-DATE: Originally delivered to ATI (Aero Trasporti Italiani, Alitalia domestic subsidiary) it was transferred to the mainline fleet on October 30 1994 when ATI was shut down. Retired on October 20th 2012, it went to Bank of Utah until 2014. Sold to Sri-Lankan airline FitsAir is still in active service.
I-DAWF: In service between July 24 1984 and January 12 2009. It was purchsed by Safair but never taken. Possibly the airframe is still in storage at Upington, Sudafrica.
I-DATM: In service between February 28 1995 and October 23 2012. Sold to Bulgarian Air Charter in 2013, the plane is still in active service.

I suppose Alitalia was one of the few airlines that haven't changed it's basic livery throughout the years.

It is really making me sad that Douglases started to completely disappear from fleets recently.

Between 1969 and 2005 the livery was basically unchanged (a bit like the classic American Airlines one), even the refreshed one that lasted from 2005 to 2015 is not that different either. (And for the love of god, better that I not start talking about the 2015 livery and new cabin crew uniforms or I might end up being vulgar.)

Well done!
@BB1987 - Would You consider doing also other members of the DC-9/MD-80/90 family in Italian colors? (Aeronautica Militare, Itavia and so on) :)

Alitalia's DC-9s for sure. Alisarda/Meridiana DC-9 and MD-80s, ATI DC-9 and MD-80, and Itavia DC-9s probably yes (I'd need to collect some sources before). Aeronautica ones probably no.

Those are both splendid, but I have one remark: Qantas A380s are powered by Rolls-Royce engines, not EA ones.


Just to keep the plane unload consistent today, the reengined super70s of the DC-8 series took me less time han anticipated, I didn't take into account (this time for the better) the fact that most of the work had basically been done while working on the super60s.
So, DC-8-71, DC-8-72 and DC-8-73 in their various variants:

Very nice drawings, altough I think that Super Sixty and Seventies probably had some center of gravity issues in real life in case the wing area remained the same. (I'm not sure)
