The McDonnell Douglas DC-10 is an American three-engine medium- to long-range widebody airliner, with two engines mounted on under wing pylons and a third engine at the base of the vertical stabilizer. The model was a successor to the company's DC-8 for long-range operations, and competed in the same markets as the Airbus A300, Boeing 747, and Lockheed L-1011 TriStar, which has a similar layout to the DC-10.

Production of the DC-10 ended in December 1988 with 386 delivered to airlines and 60 to the U.S. Air Force as air-to-air refueling tankers, designated the KC-10 Extender. The DC-10 was succeeded by the related McDonnell Douglas MD-11 that entered service in 1990.

The DC-10-30 was the most common model variant of the DC-10. It was the second long-range model after the -40 and was very popular with European flag carriers. The DC-10-30 was produced from 1972 to 1988 and was delivered to 38 different customers, including Lufthansa, Swissair, VARIG, KLM and Iberia. Its maiden flight was August 29, 1970. The intercontinental range DC-10-30 introduced more powerful engines, additional fuel tanks and a third main undercarriage unit. The DC-10-30 incorporates three 218kN CF6-50As, 226.9kN CF6-50Cs or 233.5kN CF6-50C1s or C2s or 240.2kN CF6-50C2Bs. The DC-10-30 has a maximum cruising speed of 982 km/h and a range of 7,505 km with max payload.

DC-10-30 (164 built) was the most common model built with General Electric CF6-50 turbofan engines and larger fuel tanks to increase range and fuel efficiency, as well as a set of rear center landing gear to support the increased weight. It was the second long-range model after the -40 and very popular with European flag carriers.

The primary users of the DC-10-30 are FedEx, Omni Air International, Arrow Air and Gemini Air Cargo. Biman Bangladesh Airlines operates five DC-10-30s as one of their primary passenger aircraft.
