The Douglas DC-10 is a wide body airliner powered by three jet engines. It was designed and built by Douglas and later McDonnell Douglas. This aircraft was an efficient aircraft and sought after by the airlines until a crash in the early 1980s. The media initially blamed the aircraft design incorrectly and although the investigation proved that the cause was faulty maintenance, the cancelled sales of the aircraft never rebounded and production was slowed to a crawl.
This aircraft has now been in service for nearly 35 years and has a proven track record of efficiency and safety. It is still in service today as a passenger and freight carrier with many airlines and freight carriers all over the world.
This model was built near to scale and includes animateable turbines, landing gear and doors, and control surfaces. It comes with all materials and textures and is fully textured.
