This is something new, saw a few interesting flights tonight and thought i share and get some feedback, considering there seems to be many dissapointed with NWA accelerating the retirement of thier Diesel 10's.
Does anyone have any information about the following flights:
ACA1998 CYYZ-EDDF (Didnt know Air Canada had DC10's)
Another question: How much longer will DC10s for NWA actually be in service?Will they keep them on the Hawaii routes longer?
If you see any rare or odd DC10 flights, please list them in this post, keep it goin!!!
That's an A330 now. For AMS only MSP and MEM are still with the DC10. Early 2007 they should both be with the A330, but I do not know precise dates.
This was a charter of some sort. KLM operates EWR-AMS. This was an actual NW DC-10 that was on the ground at EWR. I saw it there yesterday afternoon and was wondering why it was there. It left early this morning as a charter back to Barcelona. Does anyone know why these flights were operated?

I like the DC-10 myself. I thought it was a very unique design to have two wing-mounted engines with the third mounted at the base of the tail fin. That was awesome!! I just wish that bird could have evolved into something else...
The same thing with the T-tail aircraft. Given that this thread's title mentions "trijets fans," I will go ahead and state that my favorite T-tail aircraft was and still is the 727...
Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.

Quoting JLDWC (Reply 12): Heres another one i just saw on fboweb.com
This has to be the one that flew in from EWR. It operated on Friday from AMS into EWR as 9849. It left early Sunday AM as 9988 to Barcelona, and then back to MSP as 9841. Anyone have any idea what kind of charters these were?

The discussions have been on-going for several months. NWA has been the hold-up since they have more pressing matters (i.e. bankruptcy). As of yesterday, it IS still on the table. I am not at liberty to divulge anything further though.
35 years of American Trans Air/ATA Airlines, 1973-2008. A great little airline that will not be soon forgotten.

Thanks for the update and I understand the need to be tight lipped. This would require ATA to recall lots (if not all) of their furloughed flight crew and that would be great!!
25 Coyoteguy: Nice to save some DC-10s but will be sad to see the (eventual) loss of the TriStars.
26 FlyDreamliner: They are also running MSP-LGW on one now. They should have stayed home. Oh yes, Antiquated Tri-Jet Airways They love anything with 3 engines that sho
27 BH: Keep them trijets flying ! Packers charter into BWI N14075 (352WL) A mainstay at BWI
28 Gkirk: Sports charters for Barcelona Football Club who recently had a tour of Mexico/USA recently I would think
29 MIAMIx707: So that will be a full 6 years! after NW said ty would retire them. They were to be retired in 2001. wow nice, can't wait to see a DC-10 in ATA schem
30 Coyoteguy: Unfortunately they did not love their 727s enough to keep paying the fuel bills
31 ATA767: I guess you buy what you can afford although I am sure that those fuelbills will not be small with these tri-birds in service.
32 RAFVC10: Northwest Airlines has 19 DC-10's on service. Amsterdam, Newark, Los Angeles and Minneapolis are the main destinations served with NW DC10's. Santa Ba
33 Gkirk: Maybe charter flights for supporters, or a cruise charter then?
