MCDONNELL DOUGLAS DC-10F
The McDonnell Douglas DC-10F is a medium to long haul cargo aircraft capable of transporting 65,000 kg via an internal pallet system. Cargo pallets require a high-loader to access its main deck.
Aircraft History and Features
The DC-10 is a low-wing cantilever monoplane, powered by three turbofan engines. Two engines are mounted on pylons that attach to the bottom of the wings, while the third engine is encased in a protective banjo-shaped structure that is mounted on the top of the rear fuselage. The vertical stabilizer with its two-segment rudder, is mounted on top of the tail engine banjo. The horizontal stabilizer with its four-segment elevator is attached to the sides of the rear fuselage in the conventional manner. The airliner has a retractable tricycle landing gear. To enable higher gross weights, the later -30 and -40 series have an additional two-wheel main landing gear, which retracts into the center of the fuselage.
It was designed for medium to long-range flights and is operated by a cockpit flight crew of three. The fuselage has underfloor storage for cargo and baggage.
