Bangladesh Birman still operate the DC10-30 to this date, and in fact are the last airline to do so on scheduled passenger routes. These venerable aircraft are due for repalcement later this year and or early next year.

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.

Flew the 10 from 1996 to 1995. With it through good and bad. After getting to know her real well.....frm DC-6 to the 10........the 10 made life a lot more fun.
Sweetest Plane I ever flew, way ahead of It's time
don't forget the P&W powered DC10-40 flown by Northwest and JAL

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.
