N226NW (silver)
N237NW (red)

Or are others still flying

Quoting QFATWA (Thread starter):

N225NW (red)
N226NW (silver)
N237NW (red)
N240NW (silver)

N225 and 226NW are no longer in service. I believe only N234, 237, and 240NW remain. N226NW will be ATA's first DC-10 as N701TZ which will be headed to SAT for heavy maintenance in about 2 weeks.

That's too bad, but I can't wait to see the TZ colors on it.

I know N243 is out of the fleet (saw a picture at MSP with the titles being removed)...any idea where my special bird may be headed? Is she one of the DC-10s destined for TZ?

B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

That is very interesting to find out. This was the a/c I flew on MEM-AMS during my round the world trip a couple of months back. The trip report will come eventually. Nice to know this a/c will get a 3rd life with TZ, but a pity it will be at the expense of an L1011 or two.

I didn't realize how soon they are all being retired... I guess my last time seeing one was the old colors DC10 I saw at a terminal at MIA early on the morning of november 25th, there for a charter... sad. When was the last 742 withdrawn from service?
