Kev's MD-11 site
So now scheduled MD11 passenger flights have ceased after the arrival on KL672 into Amsterdam on 26th October 2014. I was fortunate to be on that last flight and created a new page to mark the occasion. KLM gave it a good send off. Then we had the enthusiasts flights on 11/11 to enjoy. Hopefully lots of you MD11 fans were able to get tickets for one last go.
Welcome to my MD11 web site. Check back regularly for updates. I don't always update the front page as often as i should but Latest News, Production lists and the Operator(s) pages do get updated more frequently. Latest news and operators pages updated this week.
2014 will mark the end of scheduled MD11 operated passenger services and in all likelihood any MD11 operated passenger flights. (It also marked the end of DC10 operated passenger flights too when Biman retired their last DC10 at the end of February 2014). KLM plan to fiinish MD11 operations on 25th October 2014 so make the most of it whilst you can.
A petition has been launched in the Netherlands to keep a KLM MD11 from the scrap man, Its in Dutch of course, although if you open the page with google chrome it should offer a translation. Please sign it, hopefully with many signatures notice will be taken and KLM will be able to save one. Click the link below;

I was fortunate to be at Long Beach recently, having taken a flight on another fine Douglas aircraft, the DC-8. We had a brief visit to (what's left) the former Douglas plant, and Building 84 where the DC-8. Dc-10 and MD11 were built. Sad to see it the way it is now, i never went there in its heydays. I have now at least got a picture of the iconic sign that sits above the factory. Long may it continue so.
