In an update to a previous report on the final operations of Biman Bangladesh’s DC-10 operations (see story here), and recent report on the excellent Austrian Wings site has uncovered some updated details of the date and route of the final flight.
Biman is the last airline in the world to operate the McDonnell Douglas DC-10 in passenger service.
The airline has seemingly negotiated to send its last aircraft to the USA to be preserved in a museum. The final flight is planned for February 2014 and will route from Dhaka to Seattle, with a stop in the UK (likely to be Birmingham or Manchester). The flight will be open for bookings as a regular flight, which would make it a perfect choice for enthusiasts wishing to take part in this historic event.
If the exact date is announced I will report it on here along with any other details. Otherwise, you may find details on the Biman website.
