the MD11 is still produced, 2 MD11F for Lufthansa Cargo are yet in production, but they will close the productionline next year (2001). The last 10 or 11 MD 11s went all to Lufthansa-Cargo, and LH-Cargo would have bought some more MD11s, but Boeing closed the order-books (Tooo early?).
Then, there will be exactly 200 MD 11 built.
Nice plane, I`m a bit sad about the end of the MD 11, but I think, LH-Cargo will fly them at least the next 20 years (as FedEx, too), so we will see that plane not! disappear the next years!.
