I'm not too sure about when or where they will be retiring NWA's fleet of DC10's, but I hope it's not soon! I love those planes, watching, hearing, and flying in them. Those colors look so awesome on that type of plane. Does anybody know when they will be retiring them, or where the 'water cannon salute' if any will take place? Hopefully we can convince NWA to fit the planes out with new parts and fly them for years to come.

Newsflash to you Baec777 : Canadian Airlines no longer exists. Air Canada owns all the assets, which includes the aircraft. Air Canada is unfortunately in the sack with Airbus, so you'd only see A340-500/600 orders.. .
What other people think of you is none of your business!

The two engine FBW A330 is more economical to operate and maintain over the three engine DC-10. Hopefully NW will order the A340-500/600 to replace the 747-200 Classics because it will have the same cockpit commonality as the A330 so their flight crews will easily be able to fly both aircraft.
