17. I don't think it was high enough to have retracted them yet.

Especially not if the pilots suspected a problem with the plane, and the possibility of aborting.
Sometimes you get to the point of no return and you just have to go for it, even if something is wrong, or you run out of airstrip.

Out of speed, out of altitude... out of options. Sucks.
