The MD-11 is a three-engine medium- to long-range widebody jet airliner, manufactured by McDonnell Douglas and, later, by Boeing. The design is based on the DC-10 but features a stretched fuselage, increased wingspan with winglets, refined airfoils on the wing and smaller tailplane, new engines and increased use of composite materials. Two of its engines are mounted on underwing pylons and a third engine at the base of the vertical stabilizer. It also features an all-digital glass cockpit. The MD-11 was launched in December 1986 with commitments for 52 firm orders and 40 options in three different versions (passenger, combi and freighter) from ten airlines. McDonnell Douglas originally projected that they would sell more than 300 MD-11 aircraft, but only 200 planes were built from 1988?Çô2000.
