I was the one who first brought up the DL MD 88 in this thread, and I wasn't referring to the LGA one. I was referring to N927DA, which had an uncontained engine failure that killed 2 back in 1996. This plane is still flying around as N927DA.

Plane crashes through wall, hits car, gets put back in service. Meanwhile, didn't the LGA plane just have a gear collapse...and it was a write-off?
Though I guess to me, it wasn't clear whether the question was about the Delta MD-88 or the Southwest 737-700 at LaGuardia.
