 LTU INTERNATIONAL AIRWAYS TAKES DELIVERY
 OF ITS FIRST McDONNELL DOUGLAS MD-11
 LONG BEACH, Calif., Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- LTU International Airways, the second largest airline in Germany, today took delivery of its first McDonnell Douglas (NYSE: MD) MD-11.
 The aircraft, the first of four MD-11s ordered by LTU, will go into service on scheduled and charter routes from Germany to destinations in North America, South America, and the Mediterranean area.
 LTU, one of the largest independent air carriers in Europe, offers a full line of scheduled and charter operations.
 The delivery today represents the first McDonnell Douglas commercial jetliner for the air carrier, which is headquartered in Dusseldorf, Germany.
 The first LTU MD-11, configured in a single class, is expected to begin revenue service before the end of the year. The airline's other three MD-11s are scheduled for delivery in 1992 and 1993.
 The LTU MD-11, powered by Pratt & Whitney 4460 engines, is 200 feet, 11 inches (61.2 meters) long and has a wingspan of 169 feet, 10 inches (51.8 meters).
 McDonnell Douglas has delivered 33 of the long-range, wide-body trijets since it received Federal Aviation Administration certification late last year. The MD-11 is now in service with 11 customers, serving destinations in all parts of the world.
