Two-Years Ago (25-November-2015) — Cuba

Gone to See Cuba 2015: Departure 

While departing Cuba on an Eastern Airline flight from Havana International Airport, I noticed a DC-10 parked next to the runway. The plane was missing its engines, and looked like it had been in a fire. I wonder if it is a training prop for emergency drills?
