I'll probably get flamed for this, but I would want the majestic DC-10 to come back. Yes sirree, bring back the mighty Ten with all the latest upgrades & improvements. A 2-man, all-glass cockpit, with 3 GE CF6-80C2 engines (derated to approx 43,000 lbs) a flat tailcone like that on the MD-11 & raked winglets like those on the 764. Okay, go ahead & knock down my dream now. Regards.

My wife is a flight attendant on SAA Historic Flight and they have two DC-4s, one of them the last one ever built. Flying on one of these is an incredible experience and something everyone should try if possible!
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Guess which one...
of course, with modern technology (two-man-cockpit etc.) like modern aircraft but with the reliability of the good old DC-10.
2nd place goes to the DC-3. She's undoubtly the world's greatest aircraft. Would be a nice Saab 340/Embraer Brasilia replacement
3rd goes to the DC-8. Boeing won the race, but the eight seems to be made for eternity. Perhaps a modernized aircraft with the newest generation of CFM - engines (DC-8 super 80?) would have a chance to compete with the A340-200/300.
Don't bring back MD-11 and MD-90. They are like bad sequels of some good aircraft (DC-10 and DC-9/MD-80).
