McDonnell Douglas MD-11


McDonnell Douglas tried to stay in the airliner market by improving their DC-10. The MD-11 has a stretched fuselage, additional winglets and a smaller horizontal stabilizer. Less successful than its predecessor the MD-11 reached a production total of only 200.

Not only because of its size this plane is easy to fly. Being originally a three-engine aircraft the modelplane can easily be powered by a single turbine in the vertical stabilizer.
