Nice report there Matt, boy I'm looking forwards to my trip on the 10 even more now. Pics were really great, can I be so bold as to ask what the settings were on the Cockpit shot of the DC10? I am hoping to have one last chance at getting a really memorable pic on Friday

Really really good trip report!! Pictures were outstanding! So too were the videos. The DC-10 looks great but very outdated. I suppose there isn't much point in refurbishing them if they're being slowly phased out. You're right when you said -
"We were happy to see that our DC-10 was in old colours. I think it makes the flight more nostalgic or something... if you are flying a plane in "old colours" especially when they are getting ready for retirement."
The DC-9 cabin also looks great for it's age. Very bright.

Great report... and you're right. That is a totally bizarre howling noise. I've never heard anything like that either... I am very curious whether anyone here has a guess as to what it is. Thanks again for the report.

Nice tripreport. You really think the A320 in MP's old colors is ugly ? I've seen worse, but I'm not so fond of it either. The new colorscheme is far better in my opinion. Glad to hear you had a comfortable flight on KL (the meal looks quite tasty).

So nice of you to share the DC-10 experience with us. Sad that they are being retired as I have never flown in one
Pics and the details made for a gr8 report. Thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

Just great! This report is well written, and your clear pictures are very pleasant to look at. WBC is a good way to travel, having experienced this several times on KL now too. I also should give the A330 a try soon.

Great report! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and looking at the pictures, especially giving tribute to the DC-10 near it's retirement. Yes sure the A330 must be a great aircraft to fly on, I have no doubt about that, but right now I would rather choose to fly on an old 10 because it will be too late very soon! It is now or never.
Once again, great job .
