Here in Manchester (NH) we had a DC-10 in place of the normal A300 on April 4 (Flight 913). So it was N315FE that did the duty? FlightAware is very good about distinguishing between the MD-10 and the DC-10.

Well, the MD-10 is a DC-10. Nobody wont notice but the pilots!
Its amazing that Fedex has some 38 year old birds in its fleet and that until recently they even converted such flying grannies! 71 in Fedex fleet still, wow. Are any scheduled for retirement due to the crisis?
Here in FRA though a DC-10 is a rarity now.

Is FedEx getting rid of any of the older MD-10-10's?? When I drove through VCV the other day and one of the planes that was all patched up and getting ready to be moved out to the dirt was N68056 and it was an MD-10. I know that it is one of the very old CO birds that FX acquired as some of the first DC-10's.
That MD10 was operational as recently as May 2008, are you that you have the right one?.
Umm yes it was parked right up against the fence with the registration clearly visibile. What exactly does it being active as of May of 2008 have to do with seeing it at VCV on Friday April 3rd, 2009????
Do Biman Bangladesh still use them? We had them fairly often last summer at LHR, haven't seen them over the winter though, i really hope they are back over this summer, will make a nice change to seem them again instead of all these A380s flying around

All of you can call it what you want. But just last night (April 7-8, 2009) at the FedEx night sort at the Indy hub, there was several DC10's, just as there are every night. They were DC10's when they were passenger configured, so just because you gut the passenger cabin and take out of the seats, gallies, lavatories and install rollers and cut a big hole in the side and make it into a cargo door, it's still a DC10. So please don't say your goodbyes to FedEx's DC10s.
