DC10-40, operated by Northwest and JAL have Pratt and Whitney engines vs
DC10-10 and 30's which are GE powered. The -40 is an odd bird. It has the
center main gear wheel like the -30, designed to carry extra fuel payload,
but not nearly the fuel capacity of the -30. As a result, its market value
is about the same as the series 10, since it doesn't really have
intercontinental range.
