Yesterday at ATL I saw an all white (N769BC) 767-200. I found this picture, dated November 2003 at ATL of this plane (http://www.airliners.net/open.file/464581/L/)
and I was just wondering what it is doing, is DL buying it, selling it?

It could be one of Ansett's old 762's as there are still 4 or 5 of them sitting here in MEL their tails had been painted white not long ago and there used to be 7 of them, 2 or 3 have departed lately dunno where to though??
The ones left here look exactly like the one in that pic.
We remind passengers all flights are non smoking, if you are caught smoking you will be asked to sit outside on the wing

My guess in relation to that would be that it is between two other carriers, and that DL is going to do some contract work on the aircraft. I believe that Delta's TOC does a good bit of outsourcing work for other carriers. They could even be the ones to paint it. I am sure someone could shine a lot more light on that though.

Folks, that 767-200 belongs to Boeing Aircraft Leasing. Delta just completed an overhaul and repainted it all white, and she is scheduled to be converted to an executive interior. Where the conversion will take place, I don't know. And who it's for, I cant remember. The government of Cameroon seems to stick in my head, but I'm not 100% sure.

No need for guessing anymore...
The B767-216ER that is pictured IS owned by ILFC. It used to be opperated by Air Madagascar as 5R-MFE, but was returned to ILFC on March 14th 2002. It used to be stored at VCV wearing the same C/S as the one in the picture.
