The Last Northwest DC-10 Flight

Fri Nov 03, 2006 5:08 am

The flight will be HNL-MSP on January 7...Now with all the DC-10's being removed from international flights, the remaining question is...How many DC-10's are remaining in the fleet? And what are the tail numbers?

According to Airfleets, there are 9 still in service with NW. I don't know how current it is (but data is conclusive to be sometime summer-fall 2006) They are:

N224NW
N225NW
N226NW
N234NW
N235NW
N237NW
N239NW
N243NW
N240NW

Thanks for the information, although I am sure the fleet data has changed recently due to the addition of the A330 on the international routes on October 31st....

I thought I saw one at KLM Maintenance in AMS on the 1st Nov. It was dark.

Think I figured it out...N234NW and N237NW are the only two DC-10's left for regularly scheduled passenger service..There may be others left, but they will be used for charters...

I am flying MSP-HNL in March and can't wait to fly the A330. But sad to see the NW DC-10's go. I really enjoyed flying on them also.
