      Hi All,

      Kind of a long-shot question here. Does anyone know if the AA DC-10-30s had Coroguard on the Tops and Bottoms of the wings? Or is the gray area the same paint as is found elsewhere on the aircraft?

      I have searched (and searched and searched) to find a photo showing the top of a AA DC-10-30 wing (A.net, Jetphotos etc.) and can find absolutely nothing. I've found a couple of the DC-10-10 but best I can tell the coloring on the -10 is different than the -30.

      Thanks!!

      Chris

      I worked around those planes almost on a daily basis for five
      years and they were pretty much the standard 10 wing. Mostly
      Corrrragauuurrd (haha) on the tops, and the bottoms were light
      gray with bare metal flaps and leading edges. Fairly standard.
      The ten-tens were the same way. Love-hate relationship with
      that plane...........
      Pm me for any other questions,
      Liam.

      By the way, what ship are you building?
      We had different 30s. If you are building N139-142,
      Those were ex PanAm/National and had -10-10 cargo
      door configurations. If you are building 163 ex KLM, it
      had the wing fillet fairing aerodynamic mods. Whatever I can answer,
      like which ones had to have their cargo doors manually cranked closed
      all week to which ones have dents in the noses from hitting the jetways, just ask.

      Liam,

      Thank you!!!! I knew there'd be someone here who would know. What an amazing community we have! I'll pm you with a couple follow-ups.

      BTW I'm building N144AA because this is my favorite AA DC-10 photo of all time: http://www.airliners.net/photo/American-Airlines/McDonnell-Douglas-DC-10-30/1771948
