Notes:

This plane witnessed a highjacking onboard FedEx Flight 705 on April 7, 1994. By means of extreme aerial maneuvers meant to keep the attacker off balance, the flight crew eventually succeeded in restraining him, despite suffering from serious injuries themselves. The DC-10 landed safely at Memphis International Airport despite the plane's being loaded with fuel and too heavy to land under normal circumstances.
