Give me a minute to write some words about the cockpit panel. Because there had been trouble about the configuration. Due to my researches about this fascinating aircraft I met retired DC 10 pilots and aircraft mechanics, I looked for literature and Web pages to find a clear answer to the question which cockpit layout is the correct once. And yes, indeed, the only correct layout for exact this DC 10-30 is the complete analog one! Now some of you may disagree because they saw so many pictures of a glass cockpit titled “DC 10-30”. This is wrong and a hard error of the author/photographer! Why? Because this glass cockpit layout is manufactured by Boeing after they bought McDonnell Douglas in 1996. The three person layout of the DC 10 was a very big reason for customers not to buy this aircraft because of the costs. And that’s why Boeing’s first action with this plane was to retrofit it with a 2 person cockpit and call this aircraft “MD 10” from now on. And the only customer they found for this aircraft was Federal Express. 3 of them still are operated by FEDEX in 2020.
