I was reviewing aircraft movements on FlightAware and ran across an aircraft that caught my attention. It is N880DA, an MD-88 that is flying for a new charter airline called Dynamic Airways. At first I thought this might be an ex-Delta aircraft, but all the Delta MD-88 registrations start with the number 9. I then found a picture of the aircraft, and was even more baffled.

This aircraft previously flew for Midwest Airlines and was never part of the Delta fleet, yet the livery clearly matches the current DL livery minus titles & tail. What is going on here? As far as I can tell this operator has no connection to DL, so why would there be so many similarities?

could be many reasons ... maybe the same people painted this that are repainting Delta MD-88s ... maybe they liked the blue belly ... etc ...

The only thing that matches is a blue belly (unless you mean the fact that the rest of it is painted white?)

There are definitely no connections to DL. Dynamic currently operates scores of King Airs across the globe doing all kinds of special missions and this charter service is their latest venture. The paint scheme matches their King Air fleet, and if anything it's a good reflection of the company itself... low-key, straghtforward and efficient.

Yes, I'm referring to the blue belly. It is a unique pattern that no other airline or operator uses, which is why it stood out to me. For it to be reproduced exactly seems like more than coincidence.
