What Happened With BA's DC-10

Mon May 22, 2000 8:53 am

Hello everybody!

Some years ago, I've flown BA's LGW-MIA route a few times and they used the beautiful DC-10-30's they had received with the takeover of british caledonian airways.

I flew on board of Reg. "G-MULL" (called "New Forrest" or so...) some times and liked it very much. Today, BA switched over to "soulless"   777's on this route.

Does BA still operate DC-10's today? What happend with G-MULL?

Let me know!  

Tom

When BA started flying from LGW to PHX and SAN a few years ago they used the DC-10s. Now they use a 747-400.

The last route I ever saw that BA used the DC-10 was on their new route to San Jose, Costa Rica (since about a year ago with a 777).

Not all who wander are lost....

They no longer have any DC-10s.

G-MULL's last revenue flight was Mar 27, 1999. It is currently stored in Manchester. It appears to have been the last DC-10 in service with British Airways (correct me if I'm wrong).

4 of the aircraft were going to Gemini Air Cargo (I believe 3 of them are already in service, and the 4th in conversion). 2 other were scheduled to go to Cargo Lion, but they only accepted 1 by now, and that is now replacing the one from DAS Air that was shredded in Entebbe.
