Re: Alitalia's DC10s

Today's scanned photo of an AZ DC10-30 at LHR in 1975 got me looking a bit further into the type's history at Alitalia. Of the 8 operated in total, 6 were acquired in 1973-1975, with the last two in 1982. They were withdrawn starting about 10 years later, with the last one gone by early 1986. AZ la...

Around mid 2018, they created an argentinean branch which flies some domestic routes and to SCL as well, from its base at Buenos Aires...
