"Our plant was making a modest 4 airplanes a month."

Lockheed and McD-D both made the fatal mistake of trying to go head-to-head with Boeing in a market which had miniscule sales. (The DC10/11 and L1011 were both 747 competitors)

Had they gone into 737-land instead, they might both still be making civil transports today.
