Does any airline still fly the DC-10? Will we ever see another 3 engine airliner?

DAL no longer flies anything with more than 2 engines.

A couple more operators of the DC-10 Omni and Gemini. Overseas the MD-11 and DC10 are still operated. In fact Aeroflot is operating 10's now as well.

Delta parked their MD-11's quite some time before they sold them all to FedEx.

We sold our last MD-11 recently to World. It had some extensive damage done to it; I think an engine caught fire during a run up or something and messed a wing up pretty bad. Recently it was parked over at Delta North hangar; today it is over at the cargo terminal next to the FedEx a/c. Still in Delta paint but with 'World' logo on the fuselage.

Could've sworn I saw a United DC-10 over the mid-West a couple of weeks ago, opposite direction. Correct me if I'm wrong.

If it had a white radome and a white #1 enginc nacelle cover, it's a FedEx bird.

(I know, you just noticed the United colors, and not the other details. :) )

FedEx is operating two DC-10's still in United colors...(slightly faded)..One operates almost exclusively between MEM and Minneapolis. Could this have been the A/C you saw?

Heh,I was wondering about that.. I almost always see a Fedex 10 in the UA colors coming into MSP around 8pm or so.
