The dc-10 was a cheap rush to production aircraft
that killed allot of people as it refined itself
over the years. boeing -n- lockheed put allot
of time and effort into making awsome i'st generation widebodies and it shows ( overall)
Lot's of valid redundancy went into most jets scince there inception. the diesel - 8 . is a
tank . crash , cut a wing , it can take a beating
with a competent driver. in my opinion not to take anything away from the "10",,,, douglas beancounters,,, paved the way for there demise ,,,
unfortunatlly, with the "10" cut money here cut
money there! But theres abunch of them out there.
i love to watch,,, but dont care much to ride on them.
