Seeing as there's already a Boeing thread on this, I figured there ought to be a Mad Dog one as well!

And without a doubt it would have to be

DC-10/MD-11 for me  Smile

I look at this from two perspectives; the MD11/DC10 is the best to look at, but the MadDogs, especially the MD87, is the most fun to fly in.

Take-offs in them are brilliant; I sit right at the back to hear the power of the engines, and feel the acceleration when they power up, climbing effortlessly into the sky. Likewise, I had a similar experience in an MD11 once on RG when flying AMS-CDG; 0 to 20,000ft in 6 minutes, but that was because there were only 30 or so pax on-board, where-as the MadDogs will still perform the same, even with a full load.

The -8s, -9s (incl MDs), and -10s (incl M11s) are all gorgeous and built like battleships...but....the winner has to go to:

The DC-9! She'll pick up the last A320 AND the last 787 crew when those types are retired  Smile

Now....does that finally answer the question of "When will Northwest retire their DC-9s?"

The MD-11 is by far and away the most impressive aircraft to the eyes from McDonnell Douglas. Everything about it, the larger No.2 engine, the longer fuselage, the winglets, etc. make it look very impressive. It also has an amazing take-off roll.

The DC-10 to a lesser extent shares the same aura about it. I remember being at ORD in the '90s and seeing several DC-10's at the gates at the UA terminal. The large No.2 engine made this type stand out from all the others in the domestic terminal, even the new 772's.

I really have a soft spot for the Mad Dogs as well, the MD-90 being my favorite. Along with the 727, this family is my favorite narrow-body aircraft. I think the MD-83 & -87 greatly outperform the 737NG and A320 on take-off rolls.

Hilarious! The NW DC-9's are the immortal workhorses.

I can not imagine going to ORD and seeing the AA terminal with anything but Mad Dogs at four out of every five gates.



There's nothing quite like a tri-jet.

Since the McDonnell is bracketed I guess this thread also includes aircraft from before the name got cluttered up.??

Therefore my favourite is

DC-8-63

The lines of this aircraft are so beautiful, the rear fuselage is clean, engines are thin, tail is clean, straight and tall, not hidden between bulky engines or underneath a parasol.

If it has to be rear engine variant, the DC-9-21 has something special about it.

Watching and listening to these "Hotrods" power out was unforgettable.

I agree 100% with you!

Although I love all the DC/MD jetliners more than any other jets, the one that comes first is of course the DC-10.
