McDONNELL DOUGLAS, BRITISH AEROSPACE REACH PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT TO DEVELOP AIRCRAFT

 McDONNELL DOUGLAS, BRITISH AEROSPACE
 REACH PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT TO DEVELOP AIRCRAFT
 ST. LOUIS, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonnell Douglas (NYSE: MD) and British Aerospace have reached an exclusive partnership agreement to work together to develop and produce advanced short takeoff/vertical landing (ASTOVL) strike fighter aircraft. The agreement is pending U.S. government approval.
 Initial program focus is on concept definition studies, possibly leading to the design and manufacture of a demonstrator aircraft that would be used to validate advanced propulsion integration and aircraft manufacturing technologies. Those technologies could serve as the basis for a new-generation tactical aircraft.
 The agreement expands the long-running relationship between McDonnell Douglas and British Aerospace on the AV-8B Harrier II and T- 45A Goshawk programs, two of the most successful U.S./U.K collaborative programs in aerospace.
