S2-ACR departed Dhaka Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on flight BG1015 on Thursday February 20, 2014 at 08:30. With plenty of enthusiasts on board, all keen to ride the mighty DC-10 on a long haul flight one last time. After a refuelling stop in Kuwait City, S2-ACR arrived  at Birmingham at 18:10 the same day. This was the last point-to-point passenger flight of a DC-10. On February 22, February 23 and February 24 the aeroplane is scheduled to fly three local one-hour pleasure flights each day as BG002, BG004 and BG008. Each flight will be loaded with 150 enthusiasts, who have a choice of either a window seat or an aisle seat adjacent to the windows. After the final local flight from Birmingham, S2-ACR will head back to Dhaka (empty) and is being sold for scrap
