Perhaps someone with experience flying the DC-10-30 or -10 series could
tackle this one. Why do some airlines consistently use reverse thrust
on all three engines, yet in contrast, others only use #1 and #3 reverse?

This may also be true on L-1011's or B-727's - the reverse thrust on
the #2 engines are not as noticeable to onlookers as is the DC-10's.

CAVU days to all...
