There has been discussion about the final flights of the DC-10 for both United and American Airlines. My question is: are the DC-10-30s also being retired by these airlines? I was aware that the DC-10-10s were going out of service, but not aware that the small number of DC-10-30s owned by each of these airlines were also ready for retirement. What is the fate of the remaining DC-10s owned by UA and AA - are they also going to FEDEX?

All DC-10's are being retired. This includes UA's DC-10-30F's. I dont know about them going to FedEx though, it is a possibility.

The majority of those retired United and American DC-10s are to be converted to MD-10 freighters for Fed Ex.

Okay, I just want to know when the last AA DC-10 flight will be. I would like to be at the airport when it arrives.

I think the final flight is this month(or end of last) for AA and it is HNL-DFW(I have flown that route)

Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

The last AA DC-10 flight will be departing DFW-HNL on Nov,21st and will leave HNL that same day and arrive back at DFW on Nov22, at 5:28am. Hopefully it will sit on the gate long enough for the sun to get high enough for some photos when it gets back to DFW.

UA retired one D10-10 last night, N1836U. Its final passenger flight was DTW-ORD. I got a UA D10 photograph autographed by the flight crew. They didn't know that they had just flown the last flight until I told them. As an added bonus, I got to ride with the taxi crew out to the hangar line where we parked her. I got to sit in the F/E seat  She will sit there for a few weeks for de-icing practice. I will get to spray her in a couple more weeks. It was kinda hard walking out of that plane having it pitch black inside with everything shut down..... 
We have 2 D10-10's left, and 3 D10-30's left in PAx service. One of the remaining D10-10's is scheduled for retirement by the end of October. I'm not too sure right now on the D10-30's.
