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.

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.

I know N116DL, N117DL, N118DL were sent to VCV a while ago. This 767-300 may be the fourth. Maybe a DL employee could answer.

I know of N116,118,119DL have been ferried and parked at VCV.
Two of the aircraft arrived this week, while the 3rd last week.

I dont know about N117DL.
