I'm waiting to read about a "Boeing" DC-3. I've already heard McDonnell Douglas DC-3 and DC-8 though both are wrong as is Boeing DC-9-80. Type certificates do not change. The official designation is, and shall remain McDonnell-Douglas DC-9-8x, Douglas DC-8-xx and Douglas DC-3.
Aq737, the 717-200 was certified after Boeing bought McDD so that is a bit different.
it's getting harder not to tell people they are really odd if they think an airplan can be sexy.

Sadly, ATC has been referring to DC-3's as Boeing's since the takeover. Even back in 1998 flying a friend's DC-3 we'd be getting identified as such (not that my friend would ever say anything other than "Douglas")

United_Fan, there is no Boeing MD-11. You must be referring to the Boeing program to convert pax MD-10's into freighters for FedEx. Once Boeing completes the conversion of a McDonnell Douglas DC-10, it then becomes a Boeing MD-10.
