Pre-cursor to the Turkish DC-10 crash which grounded the fleet until the door issue was corrected. CAptain on AA had to use techniques similar to UA232 to get plane back down )asymetric thrust application) as floor above cargo door collapsed, cutting/restricting control lines to rear of aircraft (elevators in particular). Dont think they lost all hydraulics like 232, but had definite control issues.

I can't imagine what the passengers went through...passenger floor partially collapsed in flight...glad everyone walked away.
Beautiful!

in early 1970s American toured around the US with the DC10 and the DC-3
the DC-3 was set up as a flying museum and was full of memorabilia from the past...see my other photo...
