The MD-11 shows some special character and counts to my favorite type of ac. See in detail a back view of the rear engine. Can you too feel the charme of this work of art?

As a technician I must say this picture creates something like respekt. Not fear but respect. I once got nearly sucked by an engine. The jetblast isn't too healthy too. So let's tick our hat to this great shot!

This is art. Symmetry and reflections add to the magic of the picture.

Outstanding! Exactly the reason why this is my favourite A/C too; such a shame Boeing pulled the plug!

Awesome photo which looks even better when you enlarge. It does look a little cheeky, if you know what I mean!

Yeah! It´s a very different way to contemplate the number three engine. So clean and shiny too. T.B.

Indeed the trijets are the most elegant airliners ever and the majestic MD-11 undoubtedly tops the list, Thumbs up for every airline who's still flying them and of course Mr. Schmidt who made this lovely shot!!

This shot deserves all superlatives a spotter can say. I had the opportunity of flying this very bird from MAO to GRU in nov/2004 (great and funny flight). Congratulations Mr. Schmidt !

How much heavy the rear section of MD 11, with his second engine. that's why MD 11 who converted to cargo aircraft always tipped at the airport.
