There was a post about a week ago about DL having some problems with some creditors and one lease company wanted to reposes a 763, but DL took the engines off. I believe that this might be the plane. They are flying it to VCV to be repossessed.

Quoting LawnDart (Reply 2): I believe at least 3 B767-300 non-ER aircraft are being removed from the fleet and returned to lessors...
Yup, that would be correct. DL obviously wanted lower leasing rates, the lessor wouldn't budge, so DL rejected the leases. Not that big of a problem, as DL is reducing domestic capacity anyway. Now, had those been -ERs, DL wouldn't have rejected the leases.
