Have you seen a DC-10/MD-11?

Hey! Has anyone ever seen a DC-10 or MD-11? FedEx used to always fly in the DC-10 in Manchester, NH and would see it almost everyday until they replaced it with a 767. I saw a UPS MD-11 twice. One at Philadelphia, and one in Cleveland. Have you seen one?

Seen plenty of them. They look like rockets taking off. The rate of climb on them are insane!

I stayed at the Liberty Bowl Stadium in Memphis for a full day for a Drum Corps Band that rehearsed there. A DC-10 flew over the stadium very low while on approach during the day, and all the FedEx arrivals during the night flew over us. It was pretty awesome.

While I was on the AirTrain at JFK, I looked to my left and for a half a second, I saw an all white jet. It was definitely either a DC-10 or MD-11, and that’s the only one I’ve ever seen.

I see them at Atlanta a lot and sometimes over my house going to Memphis around 30,000+ feet.

I’ve seen many at JFK and BOS when I was up in Woburn outside of Boston.

I used to see lots of KLM MD11s and Martinair MD11Fs at EHAM.
