McDonnell Aircraft Model 119 Factory Photos

3 McDonnell Model 119 N119M inflight The McDonnell Aircraft Model 119. McAir’s answer to the U.S. Air Force's Utility-Trainer Experimental/Utility-Cargo Experimental contract (UTX/UCX) for a small, four engine, multipurpose, utility aircraft.

(The Lockheed Jetstar won the competition and reportedly lost a lot of money on the projet as sufficient orders never came through!). Interestingly, Old Man MAC bought a Jetstar and liked it very much! See here.
