Have nearly all DC-10's been converted into freight?

For the Orbis project, do they still crew that plane with Fedex pilots that volunteer their time towards the program?

I have seen Biman in AUH, the grand old lady of the skies, the DC10. It's Biman, so they do have cancellations sometimes, so be warned.

Just for kicks, I priced out a four day scenario from ORD. For four days, doing nothing but flying (no hotel rooms) and booked in economy, three weeks out, one can get their DC-10 flight in for a mere $2850USD. This is a 24 hours of flight to Abu Dhabi (three legs), a six hour lay your DC-10 leg out, 3 hour layover, your DC-10 flight back, another 8 hour layover and then 25 hours of flight back to ORD viz three legs. LOL...sounds exhausting to me with a needed week long holiday to recover after returning.

A 3 hour layover in Dhaka? Forget it! My last Biman flight was running more than 10 hours late, and I've heard of flights being delayed for 30 hours or more.
