A brief history of the aircraft type and the airline is supplied with each model.
McDonnell Douglas. In 1997 McDonnell Douglas merged with Boeing and the MD-11 became a
produced. In December 1986 the MD-11 was given the go ahead for production with the first flight
on January 10, 1990. On December 7, 1990 Finnair was the first airline to receive the MD-11.
Delta Airlines was the first U.S. MD-11 carrier.



MD-11 unit 464 c/n 48447 was delivered to Swissair on June 14, 1991 registered as HB-IWE and
named “Nadelhorn”. On March 31, 2002 HB-IWE became the property of the newly formed Swiss
International Airlines. The new airline began to sell off its MD-11s so HB-IWE was withdrawn from

was converted from a passenger setup to a freight configuration and went into operation in June
2005 as N628FE.
