The last passenger operator of the DC-10, Biman Bangladesh, has recently sent off this legendary airplane into the sunset. Douglas knew how to build them to last forever, but modern standards have finally caught up with this work-horse of the sky. The DC-10 was a tank that could soldier on for many years, but the economics simply don't work in its favour anymore. I'm amazed that the aircraft managed to keep flying commercially for this long.
In my younger years, the DC-10 provided me with many happy memories. The most dramatic one was from Zurich to Nairobi during the summer of 1994. A couple of hours after take-off, we flew into a thunderstorm and the lightning actually struck a wing tip! But despite a moderate turbulence, nothing worse happened. Instead, Swissair produced a meal with a theme: Chinese dinner with chop sticks and Chinese beer. Even the background music had an unmistakable Chinese ring to it. The bad weather soon lay behind us and I slept like a log for many hours.
Now it's your turn. Let's hear your DC-10 memories.
