A side note, the winglets look like up only but actually have small down
winglets also (they're tough to see next to the big ones and at a
distance).

The center gear started on the later series DC-10's and was added due to
the tendency to develop keel beam cracks due to the weight in the center
of the fuselage between the widely spaced main gear.
