How about a FX DC-10/MD-10/MD-11, just a guess, hard to tell the exact color from the picture, it looks like it could be a faded FX purple.

Not our bird. But could be one of these. Took this of my bro on SkyLink at DFW before we blasted off to LGW this past June!

FXramper, if I may, I believe Soups is referring to the blue tail sticking out of the hangar, not the two birds setting on the tarmac.

Best Regards,

Swisser, I believe you may be correct. (Note both the white forward and aft tips of the tail mounted engine are visible within the hangar and is therefore consistent with the image of the Aviant aircraft photograph that you presented.)

Best Regards,
AAgent

I don't have any exact source,
Just looked up in the Dbase for recent shots of DC-10's.
It's certainly a DC-10 to me, note the tailcone and the aft engine part and then compare them to the DAS'ses.
MD-11's have longer tailcones, or 95% of them do.

And you can see the left wing trough the open part of the hangar door,
no winglets either, which is also a strong indication this is a DC-10

Yep, definitely Avient Z-ARL DC10

It was in LGW for engine maintenance, it did a couple of engine tests then went out on the 6th. (It came in on the 3rd)

Hope this helps...!
