Not true.  Boeing said last fall that the MD-11 would be continued,
as would the C-17 (possibly including civil derivatives).  If you want
to talk about McDonnell Douglas, beyond just the Douglas products from
Long Beach, various other MD designs will be continued, such as the
F/A-18 Hornet.

Getting back to airliners, the MD-80 and MD-90 are the only designs not
being continued by Boeing.
