DC10 and downtown Honolulu. This photo was taken shortly before all DC10 were retired from Northwest fleet. NW99 just arrived from USA mainland in the sunset, you can still find the charm of this old powerful aircraft through this photo. MSP-HNL was the last route operated by DC10 till Jan 7th, 2007. I would take the flight with it two hours later back to Minneapolis. This photo is not only an aircraft photo but also a piece of memory we should always remember.[Canon 350D, Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM ]

Yet another NWA in need of a good wash. Good shot nonetheless.

Thanks for the photo, I miss seeing DC10's as they are a favorite of mine. It's sad to see them go but great that people have photo's that are willing to share with us all. All the best from Sydney.

The DC-10 probably always will be one of my favorite airplanes. I always enjoyed traveling in her. This is a ship that just exudes strength.

Great picture! Shame that the Tri-jets are becoming few and far between these days.DC-10's and L-1011's rapidly disappearing and you dont see that many MD-11's round my neck of the woods.
