I would probably end flying on it but I would be quite scared, don´t know why because it seems another commercial a/c like any other but... i don´t know... most of them are very old and that could be a reason, don´t know.
I don´t mind flying on a MD-11, wich is very very similar, strange...

I remember boarding an Egypt Air 707 for a domestic flight from Aswan to Luxor. Egypt Air was kind enough to have some of the emergency oxygen mask already hanging down for us!!!!!.....never again....thanks..

I've flown on planes as small as the DHC Beaver and Fairchild Metro and as large as the 747-200. I'd prefer not to fly on smaller prop planes like the Beaver, Jetstream and Metro due to their small size (and my big size) and noise but I'd be okay flying on any type of plane as long as it was properly maintained and certified as safe, as long as I trust the operator of the aircraft. I even have a desire to fly on a Russian-built aircraft like the IL-62 or Tu-154, it would be an experience most Americans have never had.
