Flew the KC-10 1985 to 1987 for the USAF Reserves. What a great airplane and a great mission!

Flew the DC-10 for Western Airlines. Great Flight Management system. Turn off the auto pilot and it was a very stable machine to fly. My favorite airliner to fly.

Don't be scared JD. I did alot of work on this bird, and it was a nice solid airplane. The #2 engine was a little tough in a line operation but in a properly equipped hangar with a good crew everything went fine. Actually it really beats any Airbus for structure simplicity and logic.

THIS WAS THE SCARIEST PLANE I WAS EVER ON. AFTER 25 MAY 1979.

I agree with Seth! How can you have a cruise speed that is 50 mph higher than max speed? 32,700 seems quite low as I have flown DC-10's up to 42,000.

Yes, I have a comment. Your data is wrong. There are 4 different models of DC-10. The KC-10A Extender is a DC-10-30CF and its unrefueled range is 10,000nm, not 3666. There are other inaccuracies (max weight, ceiling, cruise speed, etc.), but I don't have enough time to correct them.
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
