McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30
Arrow Cargo

Arrow Cargo is an American freight airline operating scheduled and charter services with DC-10 and DC-8 airliners. Homebase of the airline is Miami International Airport. The airline was founded as Arrow Air in 1950 by aviation pioneer George Batchelor and it is one of the oldest airlines in the United States operating under its original name.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s Arrow Air operated passenger services for some years, including transatlantic flights, using widebody equipment in the form of some DC-10-10 airliners. Later the airline returned to being an all-cargo operator again. From 1996 to 2001 Arrow operated some Lockheed TriStar freighters, which earlier flew with Gulf Air. The DC-10 returned in the Arrow fleet in 2004. In 1999 Arrow Air was taken over by Fine Air, another Miami based cargo airline, but the name Arrow remained. Arrow Cargo connects the USA with destinations in Central and South America and the Caribbean.

The aircraft on the picture (N478CT) is a McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30CF, a Convertible Freighter, but now flying in cargo configuration only. The DC-10 was originally delivered to World Airways in 1980 and entered the Arrow Cargo fleet in early 2005. The aircraft also served Air Florida, Malaysia Airlines, United Airlines and Brasmex. The picture is taken at Miami International Airport.
