February 25th 2014 marked the last passenger flight of the Douglas DC10. The aircraft belonging to Biman Bangladesh was positioned at Birmingham BHX. David Smith and Barry Jones were lucky enough to have tickets for this flight along with enthusiasts literally from all over the world. The departing gate was opened early, for a champagne and cake reception. Reporters and camera crews from mainstream television news channels were recording the events and the  flight for later broadcast.
Janice Long, the radio personality was on board as a guest having been cabin crew before she started  her media career.
The final accolade to this old airliner was a water arch salute from the BHX Fire Crew whilst it was taxying to its stand.
