I was recently looking through an aviation book on the McDonnell Douglas DC-10.......and something quite interesting caught my eye........
In 1966, an early proposal for the DC-10 aircraft included a huge, 4-engined FULL double-decker design, with potential seating for up to 550 pax!
The artist's rendering of the proposed plane looks very much like Airbus' upcoming A380 Jumbo.......even BETTER looking, I thought!
This two-story "DC-10 that never was" had a nicer tapered look to it (comparing it to the A380), esp. the nose.
This mega-DC10 was obviously abandoned by Douglas due to a lack of customers at that time for such an enormous transport.
Does anyone remember this unique DC-10 design?
Any other insights into it?
