Flew from ATL-PHX today. As we taxied past the TOC I noticed an all white 767-300 with Ryan on the side. The interesting part was that the ship was sporting a TW reg. Anyone know anything about this ship and why it is at the TOC?

N637TW... a Ryan International bird that spent a few years with TWA.

Presumably contracting with DL for MX.

Probably this one: http://airfleets.net/ficheapp/plane-b767-25403.htm

Appears to be the only one with a TW reg number.

Ryan probably contracts maintenance checks to DL.

Ryan International has a maintenance agreement with Delta TechOps.

Some history on the a/c:

It is interesting that when Ryan International acquired the a/c they reused the old TW registration. They've got a few ex-DL 763s that still have their DL registrations as well as slightly modified versions of their DL liveries.

Northwest never changed the registrations on any of the used birds they acquired.

It was in ATL for a check. Not sure what check, but when I was there 2 weeks ago it was in the hanger with a Hawaiian 767 being repainted and a LAN Cargo 767 going thru a check, and a EG&G 737-500. Along with some of the regular stuff.

Wow...what does the inside of those planes look like? The same as it did when DL sold them with zero updates? They didn't even bother to paint over the SkyTeam logo on the plane in the second pic.

Some had the previous DL fabric interior but think they been changed to the standard Ryan leather.

I walked through the TOC today and saw the Hawaiian Air 763ER with new paint and winglets fresh in Bay 12. Also a Royal Air Marc 763 and a MasAir 763 in TOC-II getting some maintenance.

The average pax on a Ryan flight is probably going to, or coming home from a warzone - I doubt he really would or could ever give a damn, as long as it gets him/her home in one peace...

Sounds like Delta TOC is a popular place to have contract B763 work done!

You should have limited that comment to aircraft acquired from US carriers. They certainly changed the registrations on their many DC-9s and DC-10-30s acquired from foreign carriers.

They didn't have a choice, really  

DL historically does not change N registrations either. The 6 door 763ERs now sport DL registrations...because they needed an N number at some point.



What gets measured gets done.

I remember, however, during the early 1990s where DL had a B737-200 in an EI registration. I remember seeing it wondering "what the" at ATL, probably 1991 or 1992.

That is probably the most profitable part of Delta - but they do good work there

and a EG&G 737-500.

Just a small correction, should be a 737-600, as in, a newer and fatter 735   .

As evidenced by all the contracts Delta has signed in recent years, like winglet installations for LAN, engine maintenance for Alaska, Sun Country, China Eastern, RAM and about a dozen others, plus a "Full Treatment" for Hawaiian's 767s and A330s, though I believe the latter will be performed at MSP(?).

Cool, that 767 (N637TW) flew me to Maui from STL back in like 2000 when it was with TWA. Good flight!
