In a remarkable coincidence, the final scheduled passenger services of both the McDonnell Douglas DC-10 and its successor, the MD-11, took place in 2014, with Biman Bangladesh and KLM, respectively, retiring their last examples.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-The-impact-of-DC-10-and-MD-11-on-aviation-406735/

    Depending on which end of the market you are looking at, the freighter conversion sector is going full throttle or resembling a graveyard. While Aeronautical Engineers (AEI) is straining to meet its backlog of Boeing 737 and MD-80 conversion orders and is preparing for the next types to come into the picture, the large freighter segment is hardly moving at all.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Why-small-is-beautiful-in-freighter-conversions-399191/
