Hi Stargazer2006!


Model 28 hybrid convertiplane study (circa 1950)---typo, shoud be Model 82 hybrid convertiplane study (circa 1950); XV-1/XH-35/XL-25
Model 267---F/A-18
Model 267---should be Model 276

I've made sure to strike these through in the list so that no one gets confused.

I must say that M-28 kind of seemed dubious, but I thought I'd seen a distinct "Model 267" but I can't seem to find it now... I didn't feature Model 276 in this list because it was always presented as "McDonnell Douglas", but I will add it here not to make things clearer.

By the way,


the McDonnell MD-530 was formerly Hughes Model-530.

Hughes Helicopters Model 369/500 and all their derivatives were purchased by McDonnell Douglas.
