DSC_0835 - McDonnell-Douglas DC-10-30CF (MD-10) N319FE (FedEx/Federal Express) "Sheridan"

Originally built as N112WA in 1980 and delivered to World Airways on May 14th of that year, this plane has had a fascinating ownership/lease history:

 

- used by Lufthansa in 1989

- served for Garuda from July 1989 to July 1990

- alternated between World Airways and Malaysia Airlines from 1990 to 1994

- finally joined FedEx's fleet on September 2, 1994 with the current registration, and has not been repainted since then (note the "Federal Express" titles still remaining!)
