DC-10/MD-11 Observation Thread

Now that we’ve had the update and new aircraft for a week, what are your initial observations? With great enthusiasm, I’ve spent all of my recent IF time flying the DC-10 and MD-11. Both aircraft are amazing in their own ways. The 4D textures and wing flex set the bar pretty high. Though outwardly similar, I’ve come to the conclusion that, at least for me, the MD-11 is slightly more stable to fly. When maneuvering, especially landing, it seems easier to handle and a bit more forgiving than the DC-10. I’m not sure if this has anything to do with it’s larger size and wing design, but I’ve noticed these differences several times. What does the IFC think?

Do a quick search, there’s a few of these around ;)
