Busiest DC10 Field

Fri Mar 29, 2002 5:25 pm

Just had a interesting thought: is AMS the busiest DC10 field in Europe? The NW planes alone will add up to a lot.

Does anyone know how AMS compares to other airports regarding DC10 traffic?

I was wondering that aswell this morning. Stood by the runway for 1 hour and many MD11's and DC10's came in. 10+ I think... So besides the large amount of DC-10's of NW, the level of widebody tri-jets is quite high in Amsterdam. Consisting basically on KLM, Martinair, Delta and the NWA DC-10's. And DAS Air Cargo almost every day too...

But I guess Paris has a lot of DC10 traffic aswell, with Air Lib/AOM DC-10's and NWA flies there aswell (right?).
