Yesterday I saw a large, four-engined Northwest Airlines airliner tht had just taken off from Milwaukee (Wisconsin) Mitchell Field. Mitchell does not handle jumbo jets. What other large, four-engined airliners are in the Northwest livery and might be servicing a mini-hub such as Milwaukee?

Mitchell often serves as the diversion airport to O'Hare. However, the weather was OK here in Chicago yesterday, so I don't think the airport was closed. Northwest takes a DC-10 into Mitchell, on a flight to Minneapolis, Seattle, and finally Honolulu. Perhaps they switched planes for the day for that route.
