I was taking some good old slides at MIA some 10 days ago and was pleasantly surprised by 10 different DC-10s (South Wind Cargo N140WE, Arrow N524MD and N526MD (in all white colors) and N478CT, and especially Cielos Cargo N305FE, N322FE, N833LA and OB-1749, Centurion N612GC and Gemini N602GC.
Above all I was pleased by Cielos, as I did not expect MIA to be so well visited by them and I must say, nothing is better than being overwhelmed by some unexpected 3-holers:

According to their webpage their base is MIA rather than LIM (at least there are many more flights leaving Florida's biggest airport than Peru's). Is it just me who is surprised how big they have grown? I just think this is an airline that is somehow not talked about enough even though they have now one of the biggest DC-10 fleets worldwide (7 Dc-10Fs).
So what makes them so unknown ? Any help to solve this mysterious riddle?
Thank you for your comments,
cheers y saludos
