As you all know, after MD has been merged with Boein,g MD no longer exist and the name 'Boeing' is used instead.

However, does anyone know whether MD still exist or not as a part of Boeing? Any aircraft recently made by MD?

The last MD-11 rolled out to Lufthansa Cargo earlier this year. However, it was a "Boeing" MD-11, which is sort of a contradiction of terms. There is also the Boeing MD-10. Boeing refers to everything as their own now, they even call Canada's CF-18 fighter jets "Boeing".

Its a shame that they didn't keep the McD name living on as a subisiduary.

I don't care who owned the rights to the DC & MD planes, they will always be Douglas & McDonnell Douglas. Boeing DC10 my @$$.

Sorry to be the #%@hole here but you should know how to spell if you're a fan of McDonnell Douglas and Boeing! They're spelled the same no matter where you're from. Jeff

United Airline, it sounds like your first language ain't English. Would you mind carefully going over your posts looking for spelling and grammar mistakes before posting?

I think they're calling MDC the "Long Beach division" or something, but don't quote me on that...

I also think that especially the Boeing MD-80 is a disgrace to all things sacred (the MD-80 IMHO is the best jet MDC ever produced, and the best narrowbody of any manufacturer. Sure, the newer ones are more economical, but it's great considering its age...).

Anyway, it does make sense from a business standpoint (common name -stupid airline management). I don't believe, however, that Boeing is trying to bury MDC completely. A leather jacket I bought from them had Boeing's old and new logos (on the inside) INCLUDING the McDonnell Douglas, McDonnell and Douglas logos. Their plastic MD-11 model sports the name McDonnell Douglas on the fuselage, not Boeing.

Apparently they're just using "Boeing" whenever marketing tells them, and otherwise sticking to the old names. I may be wrong, but I hope I'm not, since in that case these "omissions" will probably be "corrected"...

Ach, who am I kidding, it's still a disgrace...

The MD80 was a nice design but MD's decision to farm out labor in the 1980's to China based on American made parts kits put a lot of nice folks out of a job. The machine tools McD exported were also invaluable to the Chinese for improving their military production techniques, and were the subject of a US Government indictment of McDonnell Douglas in 1999.

I still haven't got used to the dropping of the "DC" tag. It'll always be a "Douglas DC-9 Super 80" to me. The day "DC" went was the day McD started going downhill.

The Boeing MD-11 (hehe), for example, is made in California at the Boeing Commercial Airplane Group's Douglas Products Division. The Douglas Products Division, though, will be closing in a matter of a few years as Boeing shuts down the MD line of aircraft. The Boeing 717, though, is manufactured under a different division, the Long Beach Division.

This is a chat room, not a place for business letters.

Please go through your grammatical mistakes you are making as well.  

Nevertheless, thank you for your advice on spell checking.
