I know that numerous people think our colors are red, gray, and black, but like so many others have pointed out, they are red, gray, and navy blue. Take a look at the following photo. Granted, it's of a Northwest Orient DC-10, but when the new livery was introduced in 1989, they simply took the existing colors (plus gray) and reused them.

So you people that think the current NW scheme makes the 330 look old? Does it also then make the new CRJs, 747-400s, 757-200s, 757-300s and 319/320 planes look old too? Think about how rediculous your comments are.
Also - do your research. NW did not convert the ENTIRE 330-300 order to -200s, nor did they convert 20. They converted 10. It is most definitely navy blue and you've got serious sight problems if you still think it's black. Perhaps if you look at an actual picture and not a digital image of what the plane would look like - it may help you see the blue better. For speculation on a new color scheme - just do a search. Oh and by the way - that ugly nasty scheme floating around here a few months ago was the so called brilliance of some virtual airline scheme designer and in NO WAY was adopted by NW.
