Historical Note:



The McDonnell Douglas DC-10 is a three-engine wide-body jet airliner manufactured by McDonnell Douglas. The DC-10 has range for medium- to long-haul flights, capable of carrying a maximum of 380 passengers. Its most distinguishing feature is the twoturbofan engines mounted on underwing pylons and a third engine at the base of thevertical stabilizer. The model was a successor to McDonnell Douglas's DC-8 for long-range operations, and competed in the same markets as the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar, which has a similar layout to the DC-10.

Production of the DC-10 ended in 1989 with 386 delivered to airlines and 60 to the U.S. Air Force as air-to-air refueling tankers, designated KC-10 Extender. The largest operator of the DC-10 is U.S. cargo airline FedEx Express. The DC-10 was succeeded by the related McDonnell Douglas MD-11. Boeing, which merged with McDonnell Douglas in the 1990s, conducted an upgrade program for DC-10s, equipping several with a glass cockpit, leading to their re-designation as MD-10s. The DC-10's last commercial passenger flight took place in February 2014.

Farewell to the FedEx McDonnell Douglas DC-10! The End of an Era ? (32:25)
It was truly special to have been given the opportunity to see the DC-10 twice a day for as long as I was able too - at least I still get to see the MD-11! FedEx was the largest DC-10 operator so this is a huge retirement :( Farewell to the FedEx McDonnell Douglas DC-10 fleet. After over 40 years of service, FedEx has sadly officially retired the last remaining DC-10's from their fleet on December 31st 2022. FedEx flew both their shorter DC-10-10F and larger DC-10-30F to Montreal/Mirabel airport (YMX) twice a day for many years on the Memphis route. As the DC-10 has been slowly been removed from the fleet, the route has been switched to the MD-11. Although it is quite sad to see the end of the largest DC-10 airline in the world, at least FedEx still currently operates 56 MD-11F's but who knows how much time they have left... Goodbye DC-10 and thank you for all the amazing memories! I have been lucky enough to catch the FedEx DC10 in Mirabel, Boston, Miami, New York and Toronto! ____ Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/AviationCYUL Twitter: https://twitter.com/Mark__Brandon (@Mark__Brandon) Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/cyulplanespotter/ (Mark Brandon) Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mark__brandon/ Email: MarkBrandonyt@gmail.com ____ ATC Included!
