Hi there!

 

This will help you: http://www.boeing.com/resources/boeingdotcom/company/about_bca/startup/pdf/freighters/MD11f.pdf

 

Typically you want to operate in the region between 3600 to 6300 nm.

 

Max range at MZFW (max payload) is 3600

Max range at MTOW (max take-off weight) is 6300.

Max range at MFW (max fuel and zero payload) is 8100 or so. This one is used for ferry flights.

Anyone know of a good 8100 nm ferry flight from Long Beach? ;)

 

 

Ethiopia, Dubai, Malaysia, Indonesia, Perth...

 

I would deliver a Garuda Indonesia MD-11 to Denpasar. Or an Ethiopian to Addis Adaba. Check very carefully if it can be done though, you'll be flying at the absolute maximum range of the ship ;)

Here is a route from Long Beach to Addis Adaba which is just under 8000 Kilometers. SLI DCT DAG J100 LAS DCT EKR DCT CYS DCT RWF DCT GEP DCT SSM DCT PLB DCT EBONY N37C LOMPI N31F JAROM DCT BOBTU DCT 44N050W 43N040W 43N030W 43N020W DCT BANAL DCT BARDI UM191 DIPOL UM871 NANDO UT257 MABUX UM871 LASPO UZ224 NINES UM134 ANB UG6 DIMAO UL874 OMENI DCT ELIMO M732 DOLFI UM732 DITAR R2 ATMUL UR611 MRW UA727 KTM UR611 MARCO. No SID or STAR. ANAHM6 and MARC7A might work depending upon the wind and the runway. If you don't count the roads, there are only 4 other airports in Ethiopia so there is not much in the way of alternates.
