There have been a number of postings related to cabin attendants pushing carts up hill and whether or not it is efficient to fly airliners with a positive AOA on the fuselage. Everyone seems to be assuming that the flight deck and the longitudinal axis of the fuselage are parallel... are they? does anyone out there know for sure? I have a dim distant recollection that in fact, they are not one and the same for the DC-10. I recall hearing that substaintial structural weight was saved (remember the floor buckling accidents??) at the cost of tiring out the cabin attendants by having a 3 degree tilt on the flight deck. || Walter E.
