The McDonnell Douglas DC-10 (ICAO: DC10 / WAKE: HEAVY) is a three-engine wide-body jet airliner. Created in Second Life by EG Aircraft, the aircraft was based on the real-life DC-10, manufactured by McDonnell Douglas.
The real-life DC-10 has range for medium to long-haul flights, capable of carrying a maximum of 399 passengers. Its most distinguishing feature is the two turbofan engines mounted on underwing pylons and a third engine at the base of the vertical stabilizer. The model was a successor to McDonnell Douglas's DC-8 for long-range operations, and competed in the same markets as the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar, which has a similar layout to the DC-10.
Production of the DC-10 ended in 1989 with 386 delivered to airlines and 60 to the U.S. Air Force as air-to-air refueling tankers, designated KC-10 Extender. The largest operator of the DC-10 is U.S. cargo airline FedEx Express. The DC-10 was succeeded by the related McDonnell Douglas MD-11. Boeing, which merged with McDonnell Douglas in the 1990s, conducted an upgrade program that equipped many in-service DC-10s with a glass cockpit that eliminated the flight engineer position; the upgraded aircraft were re-designated as MD-10s. The DC-10's last commercial passenger flight took place in February 2014.
The EG Aircraft DC-10-30 is a very complex aircraft and features functional cockpit controls, instruments, virtual co-pilot (with voice command), realistic flight procedures, heads-up display (HUD), GPS navigation system, autopilot, realistic lighting, and realistic flight physics (scaled down for Second Life). As of November 25th 2014, textures are now modifiable, ground equipment and refuelling has been added and there is a new boarding pass system for added roleplay realism.
