N19072 1 Douglas DC-10-30 Continental Airlines MAN JAN89

Replacing an earlier scanned photo with a better version 09-Apr-14.

 

Fleet No: '072'.

 

Quite an early DC-10-30 (Line No: 73), it was delivered to Swissair in Apr-73 as HB-IHB. It served with them for 11 years until it was sold to a leasing company in Mar-84 and leased to the Spanish charter airline, Spantax, as EC-DUG. It was returned to the lessor in Oct-86 and leased to Continental Airlines as N19072. Continental managed to get another 14 years out of it until it was retired and stored at Mojave, CA, USA, in Jul-00. It was sold to The Memphis Group in May-02 and ferried to Greenwood, MS, USA for further storage. It was broken up at Greenwood in mid 2007.
