Who's the 20 something flight crew?

Other than Super, I thought all the NWA pilots were supposed to be witnesses to the signing of the Magna Carta.

Looked like they primed and painted over the old (I think). Seems like they would have stripped it first to save weight.
Guess not.

One boring paint job to another. Mourning the cheatline.

Look again. It was stripped except for part of the tail. Will still carry the Red Tail.

Missing from the video - the installation of the Kool-Aid dispenser in the cockpit.

"Has bid period 5 started yet?"

Why didn't they change the N number over to a Delta N number?
DL almost never changes the N numbers. The 17 ex-TWA 757s we got from American still carry the TW numbers. Ship numbers change to more closely match the fleet but the N numbers remain the same.

Dunno.
I like the new Delta scheme; I think it's a huge improvement over that god-awful flapping flag tail thing they had before. I wish more airlines would do the vintage paint schemes. Martinair's got one that flies into Miami. UsAir has theirs, but for some reason they put 'em all on the airbus.
