I went to the preview show today for this weekend's air show at Joint Base McGuire/Dix/Lakehurst. They have a DL 757 and FX A300 on display (along with the military aircraft), not sure what type of 757 (domestic or international) it is but I think it's cool they're participating. They full show is Saturday and Sunday. I got the VIP tour today, no crowds http://www.jbmdlopenhouse.com/
Funded by DL's marketing department. They're suppose to do 4 shows this season; first was Warner Robbins.
The organization is called the Delta Air Show Display Team. I know the guy that's been running it the past couple years and i'm suppose to be volunteering for one of the last 2 shows..should be fun Haven't rode jumpseat in a long time

Did you get a ship number or registation number? I know DL used to send ship 610 (757) when it was painted in the BCRF livery to events like these but it was repainted into the current livery over a year ago.
When I left work today, 4:30 it was still there. Guess they're in no rush to get it back into revenue service. I have some photos I'll try to post, also picked up a catalog entitled " Delta Air lines and New York: A proud partnership". Nice photos.
