The control columns are surprisingly tall. Are they the same in the Bulldog? I flew one once, but I don’t remember the stick geometry.

Hard to tell from the pic but the flap handle appears to be more MD80ish. The DC9-30 had a flap/slat handle (two components) that could be split to operate the flaps independently of the slats in abnormal conditions. OH if I guessed correctly.

You can see (sort of) in these pix:

Yes, it's the 35th McDonnell Douglas MD-82 constructed in China.

The MD-82 was assembled under license in Shanghai by the Shanghai Aviation Industrial Corporation (SAIC, today's COMAC) beginning in November 1986; the sub-assemblies were delivered by McDonnell Douglas in kit form.[6][page needed]

I think Beamr has it. The B29 plus 3.

What happened to the intervening types?
