I flew on PH-KCG last year, it made the smoothest landing ever! Even got a cockpit visit... lovely memories of this bird :(

The funny thing is this beauty looks brand new. Look at the front landing gear, the wheels look so clean and pure white. The overall livery looks perfect. What a sad way for this proud Douglas to go out. It is fitting that the last flight across the Atlantic would be a revenue flight. Like all great Douglas aircraft, this MD-11 is a workhorse to the very end.

This picture makes me both happy and sad, both for obvious reasons. Beautiful shot, sad ending for a true beauty! Why not refurbish? Why just.. scrap? It doesn't make environmental sense..
