Its actually a B727, hence the 3 engines.

IIRC it landed in a very bad hail storm that caused the major damage. It was a apparently a bad decision by the crew to attempt to make the landing.

From what I can see, It looks to be an Ex-CO machine...  scratchchin

It probably belongs to Capital Cargo Airlines. I'm not sure how many 727s they have, but I think 2 or 3 are ex-CO aircraft. See this photo for comparision:

The fuselage paint is similiar to CO's scheme, but Capital Cargo's tail is white with concentric gold/orange Cs.
