Back in August (the 5th to be exact) we flew down to Tampa from Detroit via ATL. Our 757 on the DTW-ATL leg pulled up next to a 767-200 in the normal old old Delta colors. The only difference that I could see was in small red letters, "The Spirit of" and then the normal D E L T A. Any information on this livery is welcome!

During the economic recession, Delta employees took a modest paycut to keep the airline in business. The employees then came together with their own funds and had enough to purchase a Boeing 767-232, N102DA, the first Boeing 767 delivered.

Just two notes. First, N102DA was the 2nd B767-232 purchased by Delta, the first being N101DA. Second, N102DA was the aircraft painted in the Atlanta 1996 Olympic colors. I was surprised that they reapainted it in the "old" colors because the "new" colors had already been introduced.
