Unhappy DC-9 Safety Record? Age?

Hello all,

I was hoping there would be some people around here whom would be knowledgable on the subject of aircraft safety and age.

I will preface this by saying that I am an extremely fearful flyer, I usually get a prescription for Lorazapam before I fly so I am sedated enough to be tolerable.

I have to travel in the near future. The second leg of the journey I am taking is a 1.25 hour flight on a Northwest DC9. As far as I can tell the DC9 is an extremely old plane with a mixed safety record. This is freaking me the *#&#@ out to say the least.

Is there anyone out there who can point me to a site that talks more about the safety of the DC9? How well NW maintains their fleet? Is there any way to find out the age of the aircraft that I will be on ahead of time? I need to do some research to help put my mind at ease.
