Re: ITS's Future Fleet Plans

The following website shows that if FedEx retires a total of 35 aircraft, some of the MD's will remain in service. For example, they show 29 MD10's in service and 60 stored and 56 MD11's in service and 12 stored. Few care about the A300's and A310's so I'll not list them. https://www.airfleets.net/f...

I suspect the material covering the glazing may just be different - perhaps Verbal can enlighten us.

Why 4 of them have the windshield installed and 2 not (or perhaps covered)?
All the flight deck glazing is covered when these are shipped by rail. Here is another view from earlier this year.
