Just curious if Delta still operates the two 727's with winglet's.

It looks like Delta still operates one of the planes but without winglets. See below:

They were only testing the winglets and neither of the test aircraft have them anymore. I wish they had kept them, nothing makes a 727 look more cool than winglets!
