Airport Seeing Most Dc-10's? To Go Spotting?

Fri Aug 24, 2001 9:13 am

As the big Dc-10 buff that I am, and realizing I want to get more shots of the -10,-15,-30,-40, my question is what is the airport that i can go to take alot of shots of Dc-10's?

I know Fedex has Alot, and Memphis could be the place, but i would also like some variety of Airlines.

Aaron,

MSP and DTW have a lot of NW DC-10 traffic. LAX probably has the most right now with Hawaiian, Continental, Sky Service, Omni Air International, and Fed Ex being the ones you'll see the most often.

Brick's right...MSP does have a lot of 10's but unfortunately they are almost always wearing NW colors. It was bit more interesting when Sun Country had their DC-10-15's there.

Occasionally an Omni Air DC-10 stops by (and usually breaks down while here I might add!).

AMS gets about a dozen DC-10s a day, most of them NWA. Plus about the same number MD-11s, most KLM and Martinair.
Bit out of the way for you maybe...
