FedEx McDonnell Douglas MD-11(F) (48481/482) N585FE "Katherine"

This gorgeous "DAC Heavy" is captured on short final to Rwy 25L at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX/KLAX) on January 6, 2017.

The aircraft was originally scheduled to be delivered to Minerve as F-GKMR but was not taken up by the carrier and subsequently delivered to American Airlines as N1759 on April 19, 1992. It served with American Airlines until being converted into a freighter in September 1998 and re-delivered to its current operator FedEx.
