McDonnell Douglas MD-11F - World Airways
World Airways is an US airline with an all-widebody fleet consisting of mostly McDonnell Douglas MD-11 aircraft and some Boeing 747-400 converted freighters. The airline was founded in 1948 and started flying with ex-PanAm Boeing 314 flying boats. The airline often works on behalf of the US government. It was a key military contractor during the Vietnam War, and it is active to support US operations in the Middle East. It also flies passenger and freight services for other airlines (wet leases).
World's first widebodies were three Boeing 747 aircraft. The airline was the first customer for the 'flip nose' front-loading variant of the 747. It also acquired DC-10 aircraft and later the MD-11. In early 2008 the company added its first 747-400 freighters to its fleet. The photograph above shows a MD-11 taxiing at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. On the photograph below a World MD-11 in a different livery is seen at Zürich Kloten Airport.
