BBC reporting it as JK5022, would make it an MD80 according to Spanair timetable.

According to TVE:

MD90 with 175 pax,
20 injured
7 killed

geordiejet 20th Aug 2008 13:53

Spanair website, aena.es and flight stats all seem to be pointing towards an MD82.

SKy probably just googled 'Spanair', and grabbed the first plane type mentioned.
