AA 191 was, thankfully, the last DC-10 crash which could be pinned on "the design" of the aircraft. All subsequent accidents were not related to its design; however United 232 is kind of a gray area on this matter. I don't consider UA232 in a gray area. Even if the starting point of the a...

Re: AA191 40 Year Anniversary coming up

Some things to remember about the DC-10: 1) We learned that a "gentleman's agreement" on fixing deadly flaws doesn't work. AA #92 showed us that the DC-10's cargo door was not secure in the old way; planes SHOULD have been grounded until fixed. But because it wasn't given urgency, 346 peop...
