Maybe the first visit for this particular aircraft but not an Orbis DC-10 in general.
Question everything. Trust no-one.

I was very lucky to visit her last Sunday in DUB. It was incredible as I have never seen an MD10F up close before, and she is such an unusual amazing aircraft. I was first up the stairs!!!

Very impressive and clean interior. If they can keep this running 10 years, and a couple hundred missions it will be a massive success.

Talked about a lot here. A former FedEx frame they donated and offered to operate on behalf of the charity.
