MSN 46854, this DC10 first flew on Feb 2 1975 for delivery to UTA as F-BTDF. Whilst it was leased by UTA from an American lessor, (which changed around 1990) it kept its US reg, including the time it was with Air France from the the merger date of 29 Dec 1992 to return to the lessor in Oct 1994. It was sold to AOM in Nov 1994.
It now flies for AOM as F-GTDF, bringing its old reg into a more modern French series.
UTA flew the DC10 to the Pacific and Africa and in the 22 months it was with Air France, I dare say it continuedto fly its old routes.

This Air France DC-10 ended its life with Air France on the pacific route and was based in Papeete doing the PPT-AKL-NOU NOU-NRT NRT-NOU NOU-AKL-PPT run.
It indeed flew to Miami and also to Chicago ORD.
