You mean new paint scheme for dc10? Surprised to hear it. Wasn't a/c 6641 (could be off a few #s here ) (742) supposed to be in new colours?

Just been looking at some pictures of the Big-10s, and the paint on many of them is dire, and has been for months - I thought there was no chance they could keep 'ORTHEAST' jets flying around for another couple of years  Smile Looks like it may not be the case.

Anyway, this is the one in question?

I don't understand why anyone would be surprised that the DC10's are going to be repainted. Many of them will be in our fleet for years to come. The aircraft illustrations in World Traveler Magazine have shown for months what the new livery will look like on the big trijets.

It must be that "people don't think planes ever get repainted" mentality. That they get repainted w/ old scheme many times, so what is the difference if it is in the new scheme?!

Is glh the company painting the A/C? All of NW's A/C get painted in Armarilo, Texas (KAMA).

A/C 6638 a 742 came back from AMA about a week ago, and I saw the tail of a 747 in the new colors sitting over at C-world on my way home from work, but then again 6316 went out as flight 19 the next day...

NWDC10

Do you mean the "Block" scheme they had when buying RC? If so, I didn't, but then I was so p----d it could have been the best flying and I'd still hated it. After simmering a few years I'd have to say it was original and boring at the same time. Looked like something that wasn't finished. Need I say more.

AFAIK, Northwest is painting aircraft at DHN, GLH, and AMA. Until this DC-10, the larger a/c have been going to AMA. Many DC-9s have been going out to DHN and GLH lately for their paint.

Is it possible for anyone to shoot me an e-mail of the return flight information? I would like to see it arrive at MSP and get some pics up here. I can be reached through my profile. Thanks.

I can't wait to see it. I think it will look great! I hope they paint the entire tail red though, not just down to the engine as shown on NW website.

I agree. I think the DC10 would look better with the entire tail assembly painted red. Unfortunately, they didn't ask us, did they? :-(

Are there any photographers taking a look on this board? I am surprised that no one has gone out to get any shots of these planes! I am calling the DC-10 if it goes back to MSP  Smile/happy/getting dizzy. AFAIK, that is where the 742 is right now.

Please! sombody tell me why ALL NW tails are not painted all the way down. I just cant get used to it. It looks wrong! I like the rest of the way the plane looks but that tail. It just looks like its not done. GOD IT SUCKS!

Patches,
I am pretty sure that they are not painted down to the bottom so the logo on the tail is uniformly placed on all of the planes. I am not exactly sure how that works out, but when you look at the tail of a CRJ next to an A330 the trailing side of the triangle rests along the rudder. The vertical placement looks to be in the center of all tails too which makes the amount of the circle on the tail different. IMHO, it just looks cleaner than painting it all the way down. I didn't take the time to look that up, but I'm sure someone can clarify a little bit more for you.

DC-10's, DC-9's, 742's Geez! Why don't they go out and put some tri motors back in action? THESE PLANES ARE TOO OLD! And funky, and are just going to sink this airline! I can't believe these people play the bury your head in the sand routine when it comes to THE FLEET! NWA Has been my A/L for 40 years, and they have lost a massive customer base on account of the ragged old A/C they keep painting over and over... It's 2004 people! do as most everyone has done, send the 9's and 10's to the desert!
