Getting to work on one my favorite aircraft, the Douglas DC10 (They've actually been upgraded to MD10s, but whatever). These things are massive. You just don't appreciate it until your standing underneath it. More to come if anyone would like.
The last DC10 in commercial (passenger) use has flown...
However, I flew a DC10 with Omni Airlines for a chartered military flight five years ago (2009).
Interior was from the 70/80's. Still had ashtrays in the armrests.
I think they pulled it out of the boneyard..
When I saw your thread title and read your first phrase, I had a pretty good idea of who the operator would have to be.
Nice to see these rugged old workhorses still in service.
It also looks like Fed Ex keeps its aircraft cleaner than do certain passenger airlines.
I'm curious how many hours and cycles these old girls have flown, if you're allowed to say.
Certainly the current operator isn't piling on either at the rate these things saw in their first life when they were carrying passengers rather than boxes.
