I wish SY had painted at least one of the DC-10s in the new color scheme before retirement, but of course that didn't make economic sense and didn't happen, but that would be a very cool scheme for a DC-10!

I loved the DC-10's on the NW service DTW - SFO - be it first or coach class. I'm going to miss DC-10's trans atlantic - sure the airbus is nice, but on the dc-10, you could curl up on the floor in first class and get some real sleep -
CO's DC-10's are gone, NW's will be soon - will Champion air pick them up for charter?

Ahh--the SYDC10s were a fond memory of mine. I flew on N154SY and N152SY SY9/10 on IAH-LAS-IAH back in 1996. The service was good but they were very cramped--10 abreast in 380 seat config--they were full. At LAS on that day they had DC10s to CLE, DFW, mine to IAH, OKC, DTW, and MSP.

Are any of them still intact? And if so do you know where they're located?
Hope things are well for you guys.. I sure miss it the ole 'Country! Maybe one day I'll head up and see all you guys. We have an agreement with SY, would you be able to find out the loads? PM me sometime.
