DL MD-11 Engine Type

Fri Jul 23, 2004 8:39 am

I was browsing the pics of DL's M11's and really miss them I was wondering though as I was thumbing through them...what type of engine do they have and their thrust rating? Thanks

Delta had the P&W engines but I'm not sure if they were the 60K or 62K engines.

They are PW4460 60k stageIII engines.
This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

This is strictly true for the DL regular MD-11s, i.e,., 801-814. The first MD-11s that DL operated on short term leases (890-891?) were GE powered.

I believe several of the M11s ended up being uprated to PW4462s to support the Pacific operations.

Phollingsworth is right...DL's first MD-11s were leased and GE-powered. They were also missing the Delta tiles from the tail...the GE-powered MD-11s had the tail-look of the DC-10s Delta flew.
