The Boeing division that produces MD (produced DC) series aircraft is
called "Douglas Products Division" so it is still appropriate to call
those aircraft "Douglas" whatevers.

But the support for those aircraft (service engineering/spares/tech
data) is provided by "Boeing" people using systems and methods from both
of the original companies (Boeing and Douglas).  "Best Practices"
analyses are under way to select which systems and methods will be
retained.  Some specific details may be available on the Boeing homepage
under "NEWS".
