Among the differences between a -10 and a -15 version of the DC9, is, (from what I recall) the additional of leading edge slats to the wing. The DC9-10 and other aircraft without leading edge slats tend to be very sensitive to wing icing (witness the F28 crash at LGA by USAir a few years ago). Leading edge slats help reduce this problem. ed >>>> Ed Hahn | firstname.lastname@example.org | (703) 883-5988 <<<< The above statement is the opinion of the author.
