  McDonnell 119 [N119M] (McDonnell Douglas)

119, 220 1959 = First business jet to receive an FAA provisional type certificate in the transport category. 10-26pClwM rg; four 2900# P&W J60 (prototype with 3250# Westinghouse J34s); span: 57'8" length: 66'6" v: 565 range: 2220 ceiling (est): 45,000'. In design competition with Lockheed JetStar for USAF contract for bombardier/navigator trainer, something more economical than B-47s then in use. When 119 was rejected by USAF it was converted to 220 utility class biz-jet with a 10-seat interior complete with toilet and galley facilities. Only one was built, used by McDonnell as a company transport for several years [N119M=N220M], later reregistered in TX as [N4AZ].
  McDonnell 120 (McDonnell Douglas)
  McDonnell 120 Original version (US Army Aviation Museum)

120 Flying Crane, aka V-1 Jeep 1957 = Army. 1pOH; three AiResearch GTC-85-135; v: 138/108/9 range: 98 hover ceiling: 12,000'. Developed from XV-1 research in pressure-jet rotors. Empty wt: 2450# and take-off wt: 6300#.

This was a Navy project—my source doesn't even mention them loaning one to the Army. It used the AiResearch turbines to feed compressed air to the rotor tips. (The jet-tip helo had been a McDonnell dream since the '40s; many different designs.) The wide-spaced skids straddled special quick-change cargo pods—it had excellent cargo capacity, with a load-to-weight ratio of 1.5:1. It was extensively tested, then fell prey to the usual problems of tip-jets: noise and fuel consumption. Program ended Feb 1960, at least by the Navy. No one seems aware of Army participation.

So, excepting a long-ago Curtiss Robin XC-10, there is no USAF C-10 of record except for temporary s/n assignments [68-10378/92] to the unbuilt Handley-Page HP.137 Jetstream. SEE About KC-10
