A Spectacular Twofer: Shot The Guppy, Caught The Ultra-Rare McDonnell 119/220.
What, at first, appears to be a regular, run-of-the-mill, Jacked Up photo of the glorious NASA Guppy actually reveals one of Aviation's true rarities (and unfortunate tragedies).
Look to the left, in the background, to see the one, and only, McDonnell 119/220 business jet prototype. What an unfortunate tragedy it was doomed to never have gone into production. The other shame is that it is undoubetly one of the sexist jets to ever have been built.
Oh, what a glorious bizjet it would have been.
