Help Needed: MD-11 History

Thu Nov 30, 2006 11:54 pm

I searched quite a bit across the Internet and came up empty-handed.

I'd like to get back-up information about the MD-11 troubled history. I have found some information (about the higher than expected fuel burn) and a quite detailed paper about the product-improvement programs that it went through.

What I miss, is a paper explaining that the aerodynamic problems that early MD-11 experienced were not found during wind tunnel testing. I've read it somewhere, but I can't find it.

Thank you all for your kind help.
Never let the facts get in the way of a good theory.
