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"

I also notice there are a couple they don't consider winners MD-11 and 717?
|Quoting N60659 (Reply 3):|
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.

However, whenever I call a MD-80 or MD-90 a DC-9 someone slams me
