Yes - the DC-10 is a nice aircraft and have had the pleasure of flying on many over the years all of which have been Northwest DC-10's actually! What always impressed me was the spaciousness of the cabin (no overhead bins in the centre).
I think the most notable feature is the large windows ( while we are on the subject of windows - don't you think the windows on Airbus aircraft in general are small or is it just me? ) I'm always reminded with NW as there is a high chance of having a connecting flight with NW on an Airbus aircraft from their main gateway's of DTW and MSP (after flying transatlantic on their DC-10's, of course!)
I use to be quite partial to the L1011 as well when Delta use to have them - I always seemed to end up on one flying to MCO from ATL!

It would have to be the UA Classic 747-200's and their DC-10's. I especially loved the original F Class in the nose of the 742 configured for international. I have even flew on their 742 in a domestic two-class config. between HNL-LAX in the 80's on the upper deck. I loved the paint job on these, predominately white. Anybody remember the UA 742 named JUSTIN DART? Anyone else flew on it? I would love to know.

I guess people are not that keen abt. 744 anymore. But I think it's a cool airplane with a great Upper Deck, atleast till A380 comes out.
I think 744 has a much better shape (nose and wings than A380(graphics)).

the 773ER I love the engines, the size, the sound & the raked wingtips... I already loved the 777 most of all anyway, but this series of 777 is the best of the best. Also of mention are the DC10 & 747 SP.
