What a classic!
I'll always remember this moment. Seeing a DC-10 rotate like this is something quite nice to see! Shame it doesn't happen every day.
Big A looking picture perfect here! Notice the almost invsible vortex coming out from the trailing edge. [Canon EOS 40D + Canon EF 70-200mm f4 L USM]
The distinctive feature of the -10 DC-10s is the missing middle gear. Departing as "Big A 643" to Managua. [Canon EOS 40D + Canon EF 70-200mm f4 L USM]
My first DC-10 in DB and I love this old plane! Dedicated to Santiago Escobar!
