That is real :). Tonight I was flying the new flight one dc9 from Kord to Kdtw. I just happened to be going by the call sign Northwest 1134. When I contacted dtw approach I soon learned there was another northwest dc9, northwest 1814, behind me. I landed about 5 minutes ahead of him. talk about confusing :). Had to really pay attention to what atc was saying, and of course there were other northwest flights in the area :) .Matt
