Dave, you can check out the animation file (specifically: engine animation) 
for the MD11 if you want to learn how to set different LOD's.

Curt, as I was working on the MD11, I get a feeling that FlightGear is loading 
every single polygon into the scene graph.  Is my feeling correct?  If so, 
does that mean not implementing LOD's may actually consume less resources?
