Will 10 Tanker expand their fleet of DC-10s?

Sun Jun 13, 2021 1:23 am

I believe they said a few years back they would if they got more contracts. Don’t they still have one of the late build NW/Omni aircraft still stored? And what other sources could they get DC-10s from? FX MD-10s or USAF KC-10s?

It'll be difficult for them to find more DC-10s, there aren't many left. A few years ago they were lucky to get some KC-10s from the Netherlands Air Force where they were being replaced with A330MRTTs. Eventually they might have to make the same move.

I believe Omega took to those from the Netherlands. Not 10 Tanker.
