The McDonnell Douglas MD-11 was the first long-haul flagship of Yangtze Airlines. It operated most of Yangtze's high demand international routes from 1992 until 2006, when they were gradually replaced by the Airbus A340-600. Yangtze operated a total of 5 MD-11s, and they were all converted into cargo jets that flew with Yangtze International Cargo until 2011. They are still in operation today as cargo jets for Providence. B-2171, pictured here, is also the first aircraft that completed a successful emergency landing in China in 1998, when its nose gear was stuck in the up position while operating flight YZ586 from Beijing to Shanghai.
