Product description

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.
