I'd love to see a DC-10 fly in. Any current airliner could land and take off in 7500 feet. Larger wide-body jets such as a 747 would have be relatively light to do that distance, however. Air Force One, a 747-200 with mods, has been into Providence RI which has a 6800 foot runway. But it will only take off with enough fuel for the fifty minute flight back to Andrews AFB.
