Here are some of the birth of MD-11s. The old MD-11 production line in all its glory.

Today at Long Beach, there are no large production facilities or any amazing aircraft being built. All that's left is a bit of old tarmac with grass growing over it.
I know its a stupid question but based on the images was the McDonnell Douglas production line outdoors???

It's always sunny in Southern California.

It does look like they did assemble some MD-11s outside, but there was also a assembly hall where most of the planes where put together. The tails had to be fitted outside on all planes though, that's pretty much what you see here in the pictures.

Here's a selection of my favorite MD-11 shots:












One of my all time favorite aircraft. Such a shame it's airline career is coming to a end.

It was a real possibility that the DC-10 would have outlasted the MD-11 in scheduled passenger services, but that's not going to happen now Biman Bangladesh Airlines will be retiring it's last DC-10s in December.

http://www.austrianwings.info/2013/1...enger-service/

After their retirement 1 of them will make 1 final commercial flight in March 2014 from Bangladesh via London to the USA where the plane will be added to a museum (probably in Seattle). At this event they will also be taking delivery of a new 777-300ER.

If KLM had followed all the other airlines with the retirement of their MD-11s this would have been the last widebody tri-jets still in active service.

The very last scheduled passenger flight with KL is planned for 25th October 2014. For anyone interested the flight is KL692 from Toronto YYZ to AMS.

Here's a picture of the tail section taken by me, probably more than 7 years ago.

Then I suddenly spotted a Royal Dutch Airforce DC-10. Too bad I couldn't get a proper shot.
