I flew to Dubai from Amsterdam in my MD-11 project. From Dubai I drove to Abu Dhabi where I boarded another dream, The McDonnell Douglas DC-10. Where I never flew the “10”, and Biman Bangladesh Airlines is the only airline left running those machines on scheduled pax service, this was a thing to do this year!
Here some pictures and movies I made on/around the DC10.
From Abu Dhabi to Dhaka I flew via Sylhet with S2-ACR,
on Return from Dhaka via Chittagong to Abu Dhabi I flew on S2-ACO.
The other DC10s aren’t in use anymore and used for spareparts. Last news I heard a few weeks ago S2-ACP is in D-Check in Dhaka and will be put back in service someday.
Boarding in Abu Dhabi
Takeoff movies Abu Dhabi-Sylhet-Dhaka, the idle sound of these CF6 engines sound so beautiful! Just listen to that!!
Pictures taken from the bus after disembarking in Dhaka.
Doing some planespotting in Dhaka
For spotters some bush in front of our view is a big problem. “Bribing” locals to climb over airport property and cut the bush for us hehe. Big fun 😀
And the returnflight to Abu Dhabi via Chittagong
Movie of takeoffs and landings 😀
