  •  We still have DC-10s in the freight world (1+ / 0-)

    I don't fly them but I usually jumpseat on one when I'm going to work.

    There are still some MD-11s flying passengers. I think KLM has some. It's basically a larger, more modern version of a DC-10. They never really caught with the passenger haulers but we like them for freight.

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
