Brings back memories of a flight I had on the DC 10. The plane landed in Spokane, and they announced that the continuing flight to Chicago was canceled. We had to scramble to get a flight back to Milwaukee.
Some aircraft crewmen were looking at the engines of the plane we were on.
That's when I found out about the awful DC 10 crash in Chicago.
