As I found the ansver surprising is the title just a little quizz for Your own mind sake.
Give it a thought before surfing for confirment/solution ;-)
And as the ansver is equal possible to surf up for all of us, there is no need of posting it. You could however use the like-button if You (too) was caught off guard :-/

I wasn't aware they were still in business! Number 4 was also a surprise, I expected number 5 to be higher.

     Truth is, I don't keep up much with civil aircraft. Although I have a soft spot for

twin-engine Beechcraft. Just to show you what I mean, my first gut reaction answer

was Douglas. Then I remembered that they went together with McDonnell. So I didn't

want to look totally stupid so I checked up on how McDonnell Douglas was getting along.

Guess what, they don't exist any more. I bet that pissed off the USAF when they found

out their F-15 advisers and spare parts manufacturer closed shop (actually bought out).

     Well, I want to guess Curtiss. That ain't gonna wash. :) I think I'm just going to have

to think about it for awhile. :unsure:

 

PS: No, I'm not going to cheat. I'm just going to do some more thinking. B)

Without doing any research, I only want to state that in Europe (probably in North America too), many people fly Embraer, without caring the least bit about the origin of these aircraft from a country thought only being related with jungle, samba and soccer.

Brazil has been mad about aviation, going back to Santos Dumont, who they claim made the first powered flight. I remember reading a letter to some magazine, possibly Aeroplane, by an English guy upset that Rolls Royce had given a Spitfire to the TAM Museum in São Carlos. He was very scathing about how primitive Brazilians were, basically because he was clueless. TAM had chosen RR engines for a lot of their aircraft and Embraer manufacture aircraft of world standard. I believe they build nearly as many as Bombardier these days.

Some trivia. There has been almost twice as many Cessna 172s produced as Spitfires.
