Re: A Pictorial Tribute to McDonnell Douglas

Northrop YF-17 (1970s design study)..... wait Northrop? Why mention them? (hint: F-18)




In 1975, after the Navy refused to take the single engine YF-16 (the now F-16), Northrop partnered with McDonnell Douglas to produce the new twin engine fighter. The new heavily modified aircraft became the F-18 Hornet.




Saw this on wikipedia and never knew they did this. Below is a Canadian Air Force F-18 that has a fake cockpit painted underneath the aircraft to confuse the enemy in a dogfight.

The last 717 before production was close forever. In this picture, the sun has literally set on McDonnell Douglas forever...

A shame to see a large company like that to.

Re: A Pictorial Tribute to McDonnell Douglas

Found this picture today, one of the first MD-80 prototypes with the fuselage still named Super 80 for the DC-9-80.
Also, anyone feel free to add your own pictures to this thread. I'm simply searching the internet for photos to remember McDonnell Douglas.

MD-90 ENGINE





A DC-10 being tested with winglets before the MD-11 introduction.




McDonnell Douglas X-36
from Wikipedia:
The X-36 was built to 28% scale of a possible fighter aircraft, and controlled by a pilot in a ground station virtual cockpit with a view provided by a video camera mounted in the nose of the aircraft.
For control, a canard forward of the wing was used as well as split ailerons and an advanced thrust vectoring nozzle for directional control. The X-36 was unstable in both pitch and yaw axis, so an advanced digital fly-by-wire control system was put in place to stabilize the aircraft.
First flown on May 17, 1997, it made 31 successful research flights. It handled very well, and the program is reported to have met or exceeded all project goals. McDonnell Douglas merged with Boeing in August 1997 while the test program was in progress; the aircraft is sometimes referred to as the Boeing X-36.
The X-36 possessed high maneuverability that would be ideal for use as a fighter. Despite its potential suitability, and highly successful test-program, there have been no reports regarding the X-36's development as of 2010.
