New airplane: Douglas DC-10

The DC-10 is a three-engine widebody jet airliner manufactured by McDonnell Douglas.

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.
