Great new newsgroup!

Perhaps now I can get a more definitive answer to the following:

Some of my pilot friends have accused the DC-10 as having a
particularly bad history of hydraulic problems (which have contributed
to a few crashes).  But do the statistics really support the notion
that the DC-10 really has a significantly worse safety record than
other wide-body jets, or is this just a myth?  Also, have all these
hydraulic problems been corrected, or does the DC-10 still suffer from
hydraulic problems even today?
