McDonnell Douglas MD-11

Deliveries of the MD-11, a wide-cabin trijet, began in 1991 and ended in 2001. The MD-11 was 18.6 feet (5.6 meters) longer than the DC-10 trijet, from which it was derived, and carried about 50 more passengers. It was produced in Long Beach, Calif. A worldwide network of subcontractors and suppliers supported the assembly line. Seating capacities on the standard airplane varied from 285 in a three-class arrangement to 410 in an all-economy configuration. Advances in aerodynamics, propulsion, aircraft systems, cockpit avionics and interior design contributed to the performance and operating economy of all MD-11 models. Aerodynamic improvements included winglets and a redesigned wing trailing edge, a smaller horizontal tail with integral fuel tanks and an extended tailcone. Boeing ended production of the MD-11 in 2000 after 200 planes were built. The last MD-11 was delivered Feb. 22, 2001.
