Lets go back to the begining, the worlds second EVER jet airliner, infact the aircraft that at one time help the patent to the name "JETLINER" The Avro Canada JETLINER was the second passenger jet ever built, roled out only 12 days after the comet, it was a short range aircraft with 45 seats. TWA and National had orders, and it flew the world first commercial jet airmail service from Toronto to New York, sadly the program was dropped due to lack of funding when Trans Canada AIrlines pulled out of the project.

Back in the 70s Dassault was developing a reg.Jet derivative of the Mystere 20 series which it called the Falcon 30.They built one or so prototype which took to the air.Needless to say-the program was axed ultimately.
The former german democratic republic was also working on a 50-seat- jetliner called ´Baade -152´or something like that.It looked fairly strange-like a ´civil´Boeing B-47,It had ´twin´-engine nacelles and a centreline landing gear.

The C.102 Jetliner was really the worlds first jet aircraft. As had mentioned it's roll out was 12 days after the Comet. But what wasn't mentioned was that in order for Avro Canada to get the jet engines they couldn't roll it out until the engine supplier. Dehavilland had rolled out their Comet aircraft.
The Avro Canada aircraft was ready earlier, it was just sat on so they could get the engines for it.

When I was in Indonesia in 1996, I was told that IPTN, the government owned aerospace bureau, had a program to develope a wide body jet. This was a prestige project of dr. Habibi, the minister of Industry who later became president. I suppose the program was cancelled when he resigned.
IPTN, as many will know, developed a turboprop along with Casa of Spain. A few were built in the eighties.

McDonnell Douglas had planned 2 jets to be powered by the 'Ultra High Bypass' engine, in addition to the MD-88.
The first was a 150 seater similar to the MD-80 series in dimension. I think it was designated the MD-89.
The second was a stretched MD-80, probably seating about 180/190 pax. I think it was designated the MD-91.
Anyway I have the story on video if more accuracy is wanted.

BAC 3-11, was not '767 like', it was more like a 1-11 on steriods, about the same size and similar range/payload to the A300. Optioned by BEA and Laker. Cancelled in 1970, after change of goverment brought about spending cuts.
BAC 1-11-700: Longer version, re-fanned Spey engines, 737-200 competitor, but project cancelled when BA brought 737-200 adv.
BAC 1-11-800: Further stretch of 1-11, Speys replaced by CFM-56's, B737-300/MD-80 competitor. No interest from BA to stimulate a development programme.
HS-178: Lengthed HS Trident fuselage, with conventional tail. New wing with two RB-178 engines, (somewhere between the CFM-56 and RB211-535 in capability). Max pax. 210, so a British 757, designed in 1967! Goverment launch aid instead went to the BAC 2-11, which was scaled up to the 3-11.
I think that East German airliner was the VEB-152.
