Saw the MEM-AMS DC-10 taking off yesterday from a golf course just south of the airport. It was an absolutely glorious sight. It came right over me. It seemed as though it was twice as loud as Fed Ex DC-10s. It was a lot lower than the Fed Ex planes which take a steep rate of climb after takeoff.

eww, I took an Omni DC-10 JFK-ATH last year while working at Homeric Tours, those poor birds...thank heavens Homeric isnt doing their charter program this year in anticipation of starting scheduled A330-200 ops next summer...
Next trip: SLC-DEN-SLC-PHX-JFK-LAX-SLC with my wife and oldest daughter. F9 to and from DEN, US to JFK, AA 321 and CR7

I would check NW flight 46 from MSP-AMS. It looks to be one of the last routes to stay a DC-10. I'm flying LAX-MSP-AMS just to get on the DC10 before it is gone (hopefully they don't sub it since my flight is in June) and the fare was not low, really. AMS isn't a bad place to vacation though!
: I go to Seattle every summer on NW, used to get lucky to get one of the legs with a DC-10. The past 3 or 4 years however, it's been only the 752 and
: Aww, I loved that part! not to mention the really sweet flares on landing...
: So it would be possible to do BOM-AMS-MSP-HNL-NRT all on NW dc10s?
: I don't think BOM is getting DC-10's any more. Its A332's now. I flew NW DC-10's couple of years back on SIN-NRT, NRT-SFO, MSP-AMS, AMS-BOM routes....
: They must have those fat tires like the special -80 equipment they used for dirt field landing tests.
: Well, if you have hard evidence (i.e., a photograph) I'll believe you, but for right now the timetable says DC-10! I agree! See my username!
: I've heard enough complaints from friends that have taken the package charters from HNL to LAS. Lost luggage, dirty/old birds, no service whatsoever,
: more like... "if your contemplating suicide you can fly Bangladesh Biman out of New York" LOL
: At any given time, you can go to http://flightaware.com/live/aircrafttype/DC10 and it will tell you which flights to/from the USA are in the air which
: Yes, you can still fly on the DC-10 aircraft. As already said above NWA still has routes with the DC-10. If you want an adventure you can always fly o
: I wish I had gotten to this thread earlier, when my was still useable. I know that MSP-HNL has DC-10s, plus you get a bonus of going to Hawaii. Other
: I think their route is JFK-MAN now... they haven't done JFK-LHR since I believe 2003, thenafter they shifted over to BRU, now its MAN
: A little harsh but I agree there are carriers with better reputations out there. YOWza
: I don't think Omni Air is all that bad either, I got to fly military from Whidbey NAS thru ANK to Iwakuni for Navy last June. Good flight and decent
