I saw this on the Boeing site... what does it mean?

"Boeing is 10 for 10; the 787 will be 11 for 11. The 10 are:

707, DC-8, DC-9 727, 737, 747, DC-10, 757, 767, and 777"


A340-300 - slow, but awesome!

Means they have built 10 winners and that the 787 will be number 11. I also notice there are a couple they don't consider winners MD-11 and 717?

No. The 717 and MD-11 were derivative designs, not start-from-scratch brand new designs like these:

707, DC-8, DC-9 727, 737, 747, DC-10, 757, 767, and 777

Also notice that there is no mention of the entire MD-80 series for the same reason.

I agree with what your saying. However, whenever I call a MD-80 or MD-90 a DC-9 someone slams me saying: I don't know anything about airplanes, I am idiot, and that my mother and father were not married!

First off, I definitely wouldn't slam you for that, but there is a distinction to be made here. While the MD-80 series, MD-90 series and the 717 all draw their progeny from the DC-9, they may only have a passing similarlity to it today. It would therefore be incorrect to label one of the more recent members of this line as an "updated/upgraded DC-9", despite the obvious track to it's lineage. However the original post only referred to true "clean-sheet passenger jet aircraft designs" of which there were 10 from Boeing (including McDonnell Douglas) and the 787 would be no. 11. My apologies for being pedantic.
