Simply because Boeing bought MD, so therefore in a number of cases MD aircraft are now called Boeing. I flew on a DL MD-11 this year and they called it a Boeing MD-11.
Twins,twins, everywhere.... but where are the three holers?

Actually, you can have it say McDonnel douglas if you preffer

open the MD-80 aircraft cfg file...

replace this line:
atc_type=BOEING
with this one:
atc_type=MCDONNELDOUGLAS
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

If you want it to JUST say MD-80 (like in real life) your atc_type line should look like:

atc_type=none
atc_model=md80
