36 Years and Still Going Strong. Does this striking and aesthetically pleasing on the eye design of aircraft the credit it deserves. Sorry for long word, it is just there is something about looking at a DC-10 which I find in no other aircraft.

I think this is the most ellegant passengers plane. Note that because this is a DC-10-10, there isn't the central gear, which has the DC-10-30.

Historic! Icon of the past. Sad that its maker is no longer around. Boeing and Airbus could use the competition.

Very nice photo, well captured. I love the DC-10, very confortable and stable widebody jetliner. Sadly, McDonnell-Douglas is now gone forever, but its products will continue flying well into the 21st century !

I have a friend who is retired from United Airlines. His last 22 years at United he flew DC-10's on mainly international routes from the USA. He said he loved the DC-10. He flew the 727, and DC-8 before his final 22 on the big tri-jet. He said that the DC-10 was the most solid platform flying.

Historic-yes! But at the time the public didn't know of the engineering/manufacturing secret internal 'short-cuts' taken--that resulted in the THY crash in Paris, and the Windsor incident (poorly designed cargo doors).
