Does anyone know if there is a very big interior size difference between the Cessna 310 and 310R? Also has anyone flown in either of these and how did you like it? Thanks.

I have a lot of time in the C310 and have flown just about every model year since 1960 and the 310D. There are so many variants of 310s that it is hard to answer your question but I would say that the 310R is the "ultimate" 310.

Given the normal limitations and safety issues involving light twins, I have always liked flying the 310. As with all aircraft in the light twin category, you must stay VERY SHARP on engine-out work, never cut corners, follow the POH to the letter and give yourself abundant margins.

The 310's biggest "gotcha" is the fuel system-six tanks to manage, and a complex cross-feed system.

I remember re-fuelling one after she had come out of the shop for tank maintenance (all tanks were emptied beforehand), and they asked for her to be topped up, it was over 160 gallons. In addition, because it had tip tanks, those had to be filled last...

It is a wonderful-flying plane, however, and it feels as sturdy as a tank.

None at all.

Well at least we can all take comfort in the fact that NW will never retire their DC-9s

None at all.

From memory the 310Q and 310R had a slightly raised roof in the area of the rear window giving improved headroom for any passengers unlucky enough to be seated in the third row!
