MDD Unducted Fan (MD-UDF), No.1 (left) General Electric engine is seen at Farnborough Air Show 1988, & each blade is nicely numbered! First flight and Delivery date are the same - October 18, 1979. Other serials - N560MD with Douglas Aircraft Company & IASG - International Airline Support Group. Wears FN 980 with Douglas Aircraft Company. Stored at GYI (Sherman-Grayson) as N980DC, & was broken-up at GYI in 1994. Anyone else out there have photos of this?
