Description
DISCREET GIANT--Newest Douglas flagship, the DC-10 tri-jet airliner impressed guests at its formal debut in Long Beach Thursday when it rolled out of the hangar under its own power. Quiet engines were started up during ceremonies without disturbing speakers just outside hangar. Observers remarked on hushed tone of the huge plane's three jet engines as it taxied outside.
