Scrape the Boeing nameplate and it still say McDonnell Douglas underneath.

Good job by the pilots, albeit a little scratched.

May be a Boeing 717... But there is no real difference. Delta flew a lot of the 717's... Just a DC9/MD8* with some white wash... LOL

The airframe looks like it hardly got a scratch! MD built a great product in those.

the photo in the article must have been taken before some ground crew painted a big smiley face on the aircraft.
Whenever you have a failure to extend by normal means, the manual emergency extend handle by the copilots left foot can be used to extend. The second problem is that this red painted handle must be pulled up forcefully to mechanically unlock the nose gear for free fall. It has happened before and then you have a double failure. Of course it might be something else all together. Just saying.

Incredible job by the pilots and flight crew as this could of been a whole lot worse then it was.
