It's sitting at the TOC in ATL. I drove by it the other day and it has tape over the engines and the pitot tubes and other sensors. Looks mighty good!

I saw it today flying in from DFW... hard to miss that beautiful widget tail from the sky! Gosh I miss that paint job... and that aircraft!

I think it's waiting while the Delta Air Transport Heritage Museum finishes making preparations for the permanent transfer. I noticed some work going on on the outside of Hangar Two at Delta Headquarters or G.O. where the museum is located when I drove by the other day.

Now, here's a question for the DL MX folks ... 102 is sitting there in a preserved state, "remove before flight" pins/streamers and all.

Will it be stored at the museum in a similar state, or will it be rendered unflyable (a-la Concorde)?

It would be very cool if DL could preserve it in a state where it would be easily returned to service for fly-by's, airshow visits, etc. on major company anniversary dates or other special events ...

It will be rendered unflyable... They are going to install cut aways so visitor can see what lies under the skin... It also will have some sort of conference room in it, and some other museum stuff installed in the cockpit... Check the Delta museum web site for the full details...

I totally agree... It is very sad that it has had its last flight... Maybe someday it could be treated like Ship 41...
