Dear Archibald,

you forget also Douglas D-956 was a big airliner as D-950 and D-952.
 
Even better!! As i mentionned, I know these project only via Science&Vie... and they only mentionned D-950 952. I really want to see a 3-view of these monsters!!
 
Hi,

We know the Douglas model D-1925 and later D-2086 were became DC-9,
the Douglas D-1940 was a four engined high wing light transport aircraft
project intended to replace the DC-3,it was powered by RR Dart engines.

The Douglas Model-1906 & 1906A were carrier-based light transport
and multi-purpose aircraft project and

The Douglas D-1881 and D-1910 were also airliner projects.

While going through a Douglas Aircraft Company report dated August 1982, I came across this design:

Figure B10.3.0-1 indicates the composite applications to be considered for new DAC transport aircraft. Primary structures made from composites are still in the development stages. The usage of composites to replace production components on in-service DAC aircraft has been considered.

Has anyone seen this design before? And does anyone know if it was purely hypothetical, or if it corresponds to a projected McDonnell Douglas airliner?

I would bet that you're looking at the MDF-100, a hybrid of the Fokker F-29 design with input from McDonnell Douglas. The F-29 dates to 1978-ish, and the MDF-100 to 1981.

We'd need some proof to back it up, but my list has D-1881 as the inhouse designation for the DC-8, while DTS-1910A (DC-8-1910A) was an unspecified variant, possibly a project only. DTS-1915 was a Type Specification for a version of the DC-8 as a high-speed transport for MATS.

Here is the D-950-30.
