Awesome, Baerke! Yes, it gives me goosebumps when I watch it on repeat. 🤪

Caught a ride home tonight on N358FE "Kurt" tonight. First time riding in the cockpit of the venerable DC-10/MD-10.
N358FE was delivered new to UA in 1980 and converted to freighter/MD-10-10 in 2001.

Amazing to hear those CF-6's growl. The MD cockpit is amazing! So much room and visibility.

The MD-10's are actively being retired and I was glad to get a trip in before they're gone for good.

So glad I was able to fly on these on NWA, dozens of times.

They routinely flew these to the West Coast from MSP, and to FL in season.

The following birds will definitely catch my attention when flying overhead:

1. B747
2. B777
3. A380
4. DC-10 / MD-11

I was fortunate to fly on 2 DC-10s in my lifetime.

- NWA Minneapolis to Los Angeles for a Disney trip when I was in Grade 6
- UA Chicago to Miami way back in 1995 (our B747 broke down, and we had to fly on the DC-10 instead; excellent trade-off IMO. !)

Very nice thread which brings back memories of flying on the DC-10. Thank you, T7
