The start of a great type!

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 20, 2011:
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).

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 12, 2010:
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.

A visitor from India posted Sun September 12, 2010:
How much is that rudder deflected??? :O....or did they loose it?

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue April 6, 2010:
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 !

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 8, 2009:
Historic! Icon of the past. Sad that its maker is no longer around. Boeing and Airbus could use the competition.

A visitor from Germany posted Tue September 9, 2008:
Touching! It's a shame how Douglas passed away.

A visitor from Ecuador posted Mon March 31, 2008:
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.

A visitor from Canada posted Sat March 17, 2007:
Great shot! The DC-10 is just such an amazing aircraft! So distinct and beautiful! I like the surroundings in this particulr shot to! Well done!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat September 2, 2006:
Old is always the best!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed August 30, 2006:
Long live the DC10.the most comfortable plane I've seen!nice photo!thanks for uploading!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed August 30, 2006:
An historic event !

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed August 30, 2006:
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.
