The Project Orbis DC-10-10ER (the second DC-10 built by Douglas) flew for the first time since undergoing a modification to become an airborne flying eye hospital. The flight took place 07 May 1994, at 17:15 from the Brookley Complex, Mobile, Alabama. The flight test included functional testing of the aircraft systems, and checks of deflection of the interior modules; the aircraft and mod did quite well. FAA flight test is scheduled for 30 May, with first operational flights to China shortly thereafter. Orbis provides an international service: eye surgery skills exchange and training, all to support the goal of preventing needless blindness worldwide. Orbis is a non profit humanitarian organization that relies on donations for economic survival. For more information, contact Orbis at the NYC office: 212 244 2525.
