Did Sun Country retire their DC10's at the end of April 2001? I have a Sun Country April/May 2001 timetable and no DC-10's are listed on flights after 30th April 2001

Many Thanks

Humberside

Did you look by date at SunCountry DC-10s in the photo database on this site? The only shots post-April '01 are of aircraft being scrapped.

Did they actually fly the DC10's in scheduled service? Saw one in TUL once. Think it was a charter headed for LAS.

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!

When i first started going to LAS in the 90's they were common sights. Now there are only FX and Omni 10's. I agree with Alex , the -10 would have looked sweet in n/c.

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?

Omni & TZ might get some NW -10 from what I've read here . Better that then rotting in MBE or GWO.

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.

Derik,

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.

BTW where did Mike G. go from your dept?

Mike
