Hello,

I noticed that some people call DC10 as “She”.
…But, in my mind, DC10 is always “HE”! Confused
How do you think? DC10s are men or women?

"She" is usually the appropriate term for a "3 holer"

An old, "high maintenance" bird like that has got to be a "she".

The DC10 deserves the same respect as ladies worldwide do, therefore it is a "she".

I think military jetfighters might be he's 'cause they're so cruel, but in the mean time the DC-10 and other commercial liners are definitely "she"s... they're offal pretty. I must admit the "three-holer" comment took me a bit off guard.

So it must be a she!

She's a bautiful bird that DC10... my favorite!


To me, all planes are she's. Just like cars... I especially like the words a NW captain described his 757 with... Long legs and big ti*s!!

"It" to me

But otherwise, if it really had to be a he/she, like all motherships it would be a "she."

All laughing aside, I think that since many aeronautical traditions come from previous nautical traditions (the sea of the sky vs the ocean sea) that aircraft are referred to as "she," just as are ocean-going ships.

Americans say that machines are "She." Such as, planes, boats, cars, etc. Russians call machines "He."

In Russian, Samolet or Aeroplan are the words for airplane. They're both masculine, so we call them a HE.

Thank you for your replies.

Be honestly, I was shocked that many people call
DC-10 "she" because DC10s are like my brothers for
years. Even I noticed that other people treat DC10 as
female, I can't do that.... It is difficult to change.

Since I've got the idea that DC-10 is male by reading
Japanese aviation magazine "Airline", I believe there are
some people treat DC10 as men too. In fact, in my
country, people rarely impersonate machines such as
cars, and motorcycles as female.

Do you think its No.2 engine makes it feminine?
Actually, the engine is why I believe DC10 is a guy.
Somehow DC10's and MD11's No.2 engines are very
masculine for me. I agree that L1011's and B727's
are feminine. Big grin

Thanks a lot for spending time with me.
Have a good day! Salsa

P.S.
Russians call machines "he"? I think Japanese too!

Anybody ever remember that book never written?

Three Tracks in the Snow by One Hung Low


:D That says it all. At least for the -30's and 40's... We could call the -10's Ru Pauls or something like that.
