I come up with a max of 9 747s: 2 741s-Ships 010 and 011 (As I recall 010 went on to fly for TW for a short time after CO was done with it). 7 742's-Ships 019-025. 019 was aquired from BA while the others were inherited from PE. 14 -10s sounds right. However, if the schedule I have is still correct then that number should be reduced by two before the end of September.

I looked up the DC10 routings and did a count. Looks like CO only has 12 of the old birds left flying. Of the 31 Series 30s that once plied the skes, the lucky few that still wear the gold and grey are Ships 062-064, 069, 070,077, 079, 081-083, 085, 088.

Continental flew a total of 10 747-100/200's. The carrier originally ordered the -100 from the manuf.
but disposed of them in the late 1970's only to
get a handful more of the -200's when it bought

Continental operated 36 DC10-10/30's and now
has about 12 left.
In 1997, as an interim measure following the
order of 767 and 777 aircraft, CO acquired a
number of second hand DC10's from Condor,
Lufthansa, and Iberia

In 1999 CO had 36 DC-10-10/30s. By my count, CO has around 12 DC-10-30s in service now. I saw N13088 at HNL in July as well as, N14079 which I flew on, N17085 which I also flew on, and N15069 which I saw at IAH. CO Mike also has some.
