McDD was showing a model of the "MD-17" in civilian garb at Farnborough
this year, and I know from talking to people at Douglas (sorry...Boeing
Company/McDonnell Douglas Division, Long Beach), that both FedEx and UPS
were informally involved in the original design of the C-17.  Sure they
may be expensive, but both of those organizations measure man hours and
movements to the nth degree, and any saving of time or movement would
save them tremendous amounts of money over the long term.
