It was flight 1107 from Charlotte, NC to DFW.

The Fokker 100 has a reasonable safety record, but it has one not insignificant problem and that is fairly frequent main gear collapses Sad affecting both left and right main gear bogies. This topic has been documented in detail by the Aviation Safety Network. Big thumbs up Below is the link to the full story. Please read it now, as it took me nearly 50 minutes to locate! Pissed
