The first wing halves for the initial McDonnell Douglas (MDC) MD-95 test aircraft, T-1, have been shipped to Tracor Flight Systems in Palmdale, California, for joining. The shipset was made by MDC Canada, but the second and subsequent wings are being built by Hyundai Space and Aircraft of South Korea. The completed wing is due to be transported during the next few weeks to Douglas Aircraft's plant in Long Beach, California, where final assembly will take place. T-1 is expected to be completed by January,1998, with the first flight due in the second quarter of 1998.
