McDonnell Douglas MD-11 (48769/603) N9166N

This naked MD-11 was captured on Kodachrome K64 slide film as she rolled for takeoff on Rwy 30 at Long Beach Airport (LGB/KLGB) in August 1996 as "DACO603 Heavy" bound for "Shots" to perform a pre-delivery flight check. The aircraft was finally delivered to VASP as PP-SFD on November 27, 1996.

The aircraft later served with Varig as PP-VQX, TAM Linas Aereas as PT-MSJ and currently operates with FedEx as N573FE "Tom."
