Now, in the early 21st century, FedEx is the largest DC-10 operator with almost 100 aircraft which is around the half of the worldwide operating DC-10 fleet. One of them is seen here arriving in Houston in August 2004.

|December 18th 2003||FedEx's 46600/ 4 burns out. The crew lost control of this MD-10 after the aircraft's right main landing gear collapsed. It was the second oldest DC-10 in service by that time.|
