The End of an Age

07 Dec

The DC-10

In case you need one more reason to feel older, here it is:  The DC-10 made its last passenger flight today.  The three-engine wide-body workhorse of the 1970s and 80s has now been retired from commercial service throughout the entire world, after having finally bid adieu to U.S. air travelers six years ago.  I fondly recall the many flights of my youth aboard a DC-10, leaving me now with this personal reminder of time’s passage.  And to think, I also remember when DC-8s were still lugging us here and there– but really, why show my age?
