Last Passenger DC-10 to be Scrapped

Last Passenger DC-10 to be Scrapped

The authorities of Biman Bangladesh Airlines are planning to scrap its two McDonnell Douglas DC-10 aircraft locally, as no museum has agreed to keep one of them that had made a much-hyped farewell flight to the UK — finally destined for a place at a U.S. museum, top Biman officials said Sunday.

The other DC-10, now grounded in Dhaka, has been waiting to be dismantled.

After operating the last passenger flight and some scenic tours in the UK, the world’s last DC-10 aircraft will return to Dhaka on February 26.
