Let's keem them going!!!!!!!

So far, only CTBarnes has attempted to answer all 10, and he has come agonizingly close.
Actually, he has gotten 9 out of 10 right.
I won't say which one he got wrong, though.....

Also, regarding the MD-11's, I wasn't aware that there was a sixth airline. So, with that in mind, I'll take any 5 out of the 6.
