A difficult aircraft to get those 'Air-2-Air' type shots of. What strikes me about the MD-11 wing are the huge slats.

20-30 years of production for other models is fair, but ten years for this model isn't. these MD-11's should still be in production.

Dear Tim,

Who would not be enchanted by this great shot of the very plane I made my last trip on, concluding 33 years of a great career. 30 May 2004, BON-AMS, KL 742.
Slats and also flaps were always a stronger point in Douglas designs. Higher speeds were allowed for selection, and usually more flaps were available, meaning not the number of flapsettings, but the amount of flaps hanging down at full flap setting.
Same is true for max speeds for gear down selection.
Keep up the good work

Only Mc Donnell Douglas could do it! excellent airplanes like the F-4E Phantom II, F-15E Strike Eagle and if commercial airplanes one is nor to speak of the DC-9, DC-10 and of the gorgeous and elegant MD-11
