KC-135 Vs MD-95 Will The Real 717 Stand Up?

Sat Jul 01, 2006 2:38 am

KC-135 vs MD-95 which one of these aircraft really deserves to be call the 717. The KC-135 was the first aircraft with this name and was Boeing design, but it is a military only aircraft and it to close to the 707. The current 717 was design by MC Donnell Douglas as the MD-95 but after MD merger with Boeing, the aircraft name was change to the 717, so it not really a Boeing aircraft. So which aircraft do you believe is the real 717?

KC/C-135 is the ORIGINAL 717. The MD-95 may be the CURRENT 717 but the KC/C-135 will always be the original.
