Funny - Mock MD Military A/C Survey

Sat May 07, 2005 10:05 pm

Found this fake 'survey' on the Internet - it was purported to have been uploaded to McDonnell-Douglas' site several years ago in a hidden location, although this has since been proven untrue. It's still pretty hilarious though.

"This was actually posted very briefly on the McDonnell Douglas web site by an employee there who obviously has a sense of humor. The company, of course, does not (have a sense of humor) - and made the web department take it down immediately. (McDonnell Douglas is one of the world's chief suppliers of military aircraft)."

Hrm...shame the aircraft list isn't accurate though as only one of those aircraft was a McDonnell Douglas product - still funny!
