McDonnell Douglas DC-10: books - history and technology

A book on the McDonnell Douglas DC-10? Here are books on the history and technology of McDonnell Douglas passenger aircraft.

McDonnell Douglas DC-10 / MD-11 (Legends of Flight)

The McDonnell Douglas DC-10 three-engine jet is one of the most distinctive wide-bodied aircraft and since the early 1970s has been operated by many airlines on medium- and long-distance routes throughout the world. Successfully flying passenger service for over 40 years, the DC-10 currently still flies for FedEx in an airfreight delivery role.

Filled with design and construction information, background history, technical data, and rare images, this book describes the exciting story of this aviation legend as flown by such current and past airlines as Aeroflot, American, Delta, Eastern, KLM, Lufthansa, Northwest, Pan Am, Qantas, SAS, Swissair, United, and many others.
Also, the US Air Force has been flying the KC-10 Extender aerial-refueling tanker variant since the early 1980s. Coverage of the follow-on MD-11 series of aircraft is also included.

McDonnell Douglas DC- 10 (Die Flugzeugstars)

Die riesige McDonnell Douglas DC-10 ist ein dreistrahliges Großraumflugzeug und sollte die Lücke zwischen der Boeing 747 und kleineren Passagiermaschinen schließen. Mit ihren drei Triebwerken ließ sich die DC-10 auf Strecken wirtschaftlich betreiben, die für den größeren "Jumbo Jet" schlicht unrentabel waren.
Sie war nach der Boeing 747 lange Zeit das häufigste und schwerste Großraumflugzeug und wurde von vielen Airlines auf Mittel- und Langstrecken betrieben. Für das Militär entstand unter anderem die Tankerversion KC-10, die bis heute im Einsatz ist. Und auch zahlreiche Frachtdienstleister fliegen die Maschine bis heute.

The Story of the McDonnell Douglas MD-11

After creating the successful but controversial DC-10 jetliner in the 1970s, McDonnell Douglas updated the type to create the MD-11 in the early 1990s. A lack of resources and time meant the MD-11 became much less - a sales flop with a questionable safety record - and much more - a unique three-engines machine in the twin-jet era that went on to have a long and interesting career both in passenger operations and freight hauling.

This book shows the development of the aircraft with a detailed look at the history of Douglas, the path through the DC-10 to the MD-11, it's troubled entry into service, and its second wind as a reliable cargo hauler.
The text is accompanied by a detailed history of every airframe, from delivery to retirement. A fascinating chapter in the history of the Jet Age.
