Topic: Updated NW->DL Repaint List?

I was at MKE today and every NW flight I saw was with a plane in the new DL paint. This got me thinking, does anyone have an updated list of how many of NW's planes have been repainted into DL colors? And when do they expect to have all repaints complete? Thanks.

Yeah you know I did, its just that I don't really know how to work the "Fleet Viewer" page so I couldn't figure it out. When is the NW website supposed to get shut down? What about the name NW itself, isn't that supposed to go away soon too?

The Fleetviewer isn't that bad, try it again (with the hints below) and you'll be amazed at the level of detail available. However if you want to see a quick overview, go to the home page and click the data button and then the liveries button.

Go to www.widgetheads.net (you should be taken to a page that says "fleet overview."

Click on the Fleet Viewer tab.

Look in the second column where the header says "sort/limit/group" and select the button that says "operator." When the list appears, select "type."

Now click on the "all" button that appears under "type."

A small window should open up with every kind of aircraft. Note that every single one of them is checked. Let's say we want to look at 757-300's. Click on that name and all the other checkmarks should disappear and only the 757-300 will be checked. Now click the "Done" button on the right of the small window.

Repeat the process for any aircraft you want.

The last thing I saw said that there about 100 NW a/c yet to be painted of those that WERE going to be painted.

Pretty neat site...thanks to the person(s) who put it together and share with us...I
was in DTW and ATL today.
Sadly the RedTail is fading away. You can see it just looking at the rows of planes parked at DTW and that goes for R.J.'s too.
safe

Off the top of my head:

-All DC-95s are painted, the rest of the -9s will not be painted. It's easy to tell a -50 now.
-All series 5600 752s are painted. The rest will not be, so the two series are an easy visual separation.
-Most of the 753 are painted.
-Many A319/320s are painted. It's got to be at least 2/3rds now.
-All A332s are painted, and most of the A333s are painted (about 15/21).
-There should be 6 747s in DL colors, and one is at VCV right now.


There's still a lot of NW Airlink planes to be painted though.

I apologize. It's been very difficult to figure out a way to make it more user friendly without loosing the 100% customization features. It's come a long way from the beginning and I plan to modify it still. The only thing stopping me is time. There's never enough hours in the day.

You want to write up a guide for the rest of my site too?  Silly

And it is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better than when we had to download it to excel.
BTW they are saying now they are only going to park the DC9-30/40s (next 18mon.) so are they going to paint the rest of the DAL-N 757 fleet?

You're telling me? I'm the one that had to maintain it! LOL It's 100 times easier now. I just have 1000 times more data. Big grin

Perhaps. We shall find out soon enough. If they plan on painting them, it would be before early next year, as there's not much left to paint.

Ships 6301, 6305, 6308, 6315, and 6316 are complete. Ship 6304 should be rolling out of VCV any day with the new paint.


I'm glad to see the block-1 ships (6301-6310) getting the repaint also. I was worried that they'd be the first to go, but so far they're getting the repaints first. None of the block-2 ships (6311-6314) have got the repaint yet, interestingly enough.

6304 got out Friday. 6313 is in now. (It looks like 6306 was originally scheduled to go in, but 6304 was delayed in getting out so 6313 made it in instead)

I'm interested in finding out more about the 5500's future. I've been stuck flying on them several times this year and it's an unpleasant experience. If they are intending to keep them now I hope they start getting refurbished soon.

As would I. Thats alot of seats just to park. Plus Ed only said the DC-9 will be parked, he didn't say anything about any 757s

21-24 years old. Same age as a number of them that have been scrapped.

The decision to scrap those birds was made by the lessor. To my knowledge, none of the birds scrapped were owned by NWA but were all leased aircraft.

How's the progress on the Airlink planes? I know there was talk about when the Saabs started going in that they would take awhile because of the way they had to strip the old paint, but I haven't heard anything sense about them or the RJs.

IIRC Citi bought 10 of the parked 5500s. These are the ones that have been getting scrapped.

Last time I checked widgetheads, 19 of the Saabs had been repainted.

Thats good to hear, that is a lot of airplanes to park. I know with the merger, some planes will be parked, but I hope they keep it to an absolute miminum.

The 757's were lease-rejected during Ch. 11. Yes, these are the ones being scrapped, it wasn't NW decision, they no longer wanted to lease the aircraft.

How many are they planning on painting with the intended return of a number of aircraft to Saab between this year and next?
