It's more than a little bit ironic to hear the boasting about redundant hydraulic systems.

Nice.

Lots of good infomation for the DC-10 buff. But, no introduction to dial-a-flap?

It says "towing vehicle can operate aft of the nose-gear". That is interesting. Was this used in operations?

It was a little bit old hat by then, having been used on the DC-9 and earlier DC-10s.

I thought so too, but I've never seen it. Probably more trouble than it's worth in a lot of cases, plus I think that some tugs have swiveling driver's seat.

In my eyes the Boeing 747 will ALWAYS be the queen of the skies!

You could do the same with the 747 back then. AA did this with the 747 and DC-10, and was done at places like LAX where the nose of the plane would be very close to the terminal and there wouldn't be room to hook up a big push tug like a T-500 or 800, so they hooked it up to the backside of the nose-gear.

Hot section reversers! I've not seen them for a LONG time! That was worth watching the whole film!

DC10 was such a pretty bird... My first wide body ride and the only DC10-30 experience was Finnair's service HEL-SEA-HEL some 25y years back, exiting for an young guy. The cabin felt so huge then...

I've seen the tugs towing behind the nose gear before on DC10s, 747s, and L10s...I also want to say I've seen it on AB3s.

Did I miss something? If the center gear freefall drop lever was by the engineer's panel, the main gear freefall lever was by the F/O's seat, what about the nose gear?

Tchau

Love the DC-10-30 humongous cabin space, the cool pax doors that went up into the fuselage ..

It was a great time flying these beauties in the 80´s

Long Live DC10-30   



Airbus SAS - Love them both
