In memory situation, a solid-5 and also a tremendous shot. To bad winglets for diesel ten didn't pan out!

OMG! Certainly made me do a double take. First thought Hmmm...MD11 in those colours? Cannot be and then that. Never seen a DC10 with winglets. Great picture. Thank you for sharing!

It has historic value, the photo and the plane are neat and clean. It shows how time change our understanding or the place and the world where we live, represented in the lively -then and now- also the slide and its characteristics utilized to make the picture.

Very unique! I've never seen this before, and it's more beautiful than an MD-11.

Omg! Though it was an MD11! These winglets look cooler than what they went with......

An amazing memory!

I'm assuming the testing turned out not to be fruitful? Otherwise DC-10s today would be retrofitted with winglets, right?
