I am a huge fan of the DC-10, and I guess of NWA since they are one of the few airlines still operating scheduled DC-10 service. Can you please list a few of NWA's DC-10 flights from the past or of the present. I already know these currently operate:

MSP-AMS-MSP
MSP-HNL-MSP
HNL-KIX-HNL
EWR-AMS-EWR (recently stopped)

Can you name any others? Thanks for your input!!

TPA, MCO, and MIA all saw scheduled DC10 service from MSP during the season back in the 70's. I would not be surprised to see FLL and RSW but I can't confirm them.

Quoting Pensacolaguy (Reply 11):

From pictures that have been taken over the last 6 months, I count 13 different registration number that have been photographed. There may be a few more but most all of them are photgraphed at AMS at one point or another and there is a good chance that most of them have visited AMS during the last six months

Registration numbers include
N221NW
N223NW
N224NW
N225NW
N226NW
N232NW
N235NW
N237NW
N238NW
N239NW
N240NW
N243NW
N244NW

I got to fly on N224NW back in December from HNL-MSP. Probably will be my last DC10 flight  Sad

Hahaha, like the rest of the NW fleet, only part of the DC-10 fleet has been repainted in the white. Lucky for the DC-10s, they never had the dreadful silver they sprayed on the DC-9s for about a year.

And in 1988 I made my first trip to the USA on the PIK-BOS flight (via SNN). I continued on another NW DC-10 to JFK and, of course, did the whole thing in reverse but without the SNN stop.

The flight you are talking about NW034, was a 747 in the mid 80's, not a DC-10.

I think you might have a few more years yet to get another NWA DC-10 flight in. NWA has been recently renegotiating the lease rates on a lot of their aircraft, DC-10's included. I'm searching for an official source for you, but NWA got their DC-10 rates down to nearly 1/5 of what they were paying before they declared chapter 11. At any rate, they are currently leasing their DC-10's for nickels on the dollar since there really isn't a north american market for the DC-10 anymore. I have heard also (looking for an official source on this too) that NWA intends to retire the DC-10 at "an aggressive rate" once they start taking deliveries of the 787 in August 2008.
