MD-11 and DC-10 work

9 May 2016

These two aircraft at the Miami International Airport were revisited recently—it appears they are undergoing major overhaul efforts or simply being parted out.

    My guess would be parting out…….you wouldn’t take the leading edge off the fin, for example and leave it open to the elements.

      Ross, you make an excellent point and I must agree. MIA is interesting due to its history and nearby Glenn Curtiss Mansion as well as being entirely surrounded by urban terrain. That’s Miami…crowded but nice to be in.

    Would the wing tips indicate a relatively current upgrade….maybe a current one? I tend to think of things like “if only “mileage” could speak!” 🙂

      Yes, what storied these aircraft might tell if they only could. Since I took the photos I’ve driven by there a few times and the aircraft are slowly but surely being nibbled away.
