I'll be there tomorrow with camera in hand. Should be quite the sight given how spectacular our 727's landing at YRP was. The CO DC-10 will be by far the largest aircraft ever to land at the airfield. A couple of months ago, our 7F 721 gained the distinction of being the largest aircraft to land there...didn't take long to surpass it, but I doubt this time it will ever be surpassed again. YRP's runway is under 4,000 feet!!!!! Embarrassment

>>>What's it going to do there? Did it come from Mojave

According to a post in Yahoo's Mohave Group, it's coming out of MHV, and will eventually be a training device for law enforcement folks at CYRP.

Hope someone can get soime video in addition to stills....

Got to see the DC-10 land (reg was I think N13072) at YRP. Nedless to say, she burned some big-time rubber, but no blown tires. The crew could have have stop in about 3,000ft, but let her roll out, stopping just before the end of the rwy. After coming to a stop, the right main gear breaks were smoking a bit. The approach was near perfect and she literally touched down right on the numbers, barely clearing the landing lights and probably only about 50ft above the telephone poles. However, in many ways it was less dramatic then when our 721 landed.

I'm such an idiot though, I forgot my camera yet again. After forgetting my camera when our 721 landed, I vowed not to forget again, but ah well, c'est la vie. There certainly won't be a lack of cameras as in addition to the 200 7F employees, there must have been an equal number of spotters.
