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

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun July 18, 2010:
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!

A visitor from - posted Sat July 17, 2010:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 17, 2010:
Very unique! I've never seen this before, and it's more beautiful than an MD-11.

A visitor from - posted Sat July 17, 2010:
Omg! Though it was an MD11! These winglets look cooler than what they went with......

A visitor from - posted Sat July 17, 2010:
An amazing memory!

A visitor from - posted Sat July 17, 2010:
I'm assuming the testing turned out not to be fruitful? Otherwise DC-10s today would be retrofitted with winglets, right?
