Since you included flying testbed, then I think the DC9/MD80/90/95
should be mentioned, too:

P&W JT8D, IAE V2500, BMW-RR BR715 (not yet, but it's inevitable),
P&W/Allison propfan (I don't know the engine designation), and GE36 (UDF).
Also, reengining with R-R's Tay engine was considered, but I don't think
it was ever put on a DC9 (correct me if I'm wrong).

: 	IAE V2500 (on a testbed) (IAE is P&W/R-R/MTU/IHI/Fiat)

Just a nitpicking, it's not IHI. It's JAEC, and IHI is a part of JAEC.
