Sounds very fun! I never knew that Northwest had a DC-10 ! You learn and gain something new everyday. You can count on my presence. See you there, happy flying guys, good day!

Well in that case, if they added it on the DC-10 more then likely on the MD-11 as well. I have never saw that livery before, so correct me before, the DC-10 NWA already exists, :)

I don’t remember NWA having MD11s. Yes, I see that the Northwest DC10 already exist. I’m saying the NWA one should be added as well. It was there latest livery before Delta gobbled them up. Looks pretty nice if I do say.

Picture shown is not an MD11. Doesn’t have winglets. 😉

Most definitely reminds me of Carson… Wonder if he purposely included that waypoint for him? Conspiracies, Conspiracies… 🙃

Wow that DC-10 looks amazing! I used to be a gold member with Northwest before Delta took over so this is a great FNF for me.

What’s the aircraft for the Memphis to Minneapolis route?

I recommend the 757 or A319 in NWA livery for that route.

This is what I had in mind when I imagined people flying to the same destination. Mind blowing. Easily 30 planes all going to Detroit it seems.

I traveled incognito after I accidentally switched the WiFi off. But everything’s still good!
