"Spirit Of Delta" Soon To Be Repainted?

Tue Jun 04, 2002 7:40 am

There was a post here, like 7 weeks ago asserting that N102DA would be repainted on or near June 13, but he was not positive. So as this day is fast approaching, can someone confirm if this is indeed true?

Yes Ship 102 is to be repainted starting on July 2. It should be done about on the 10th. It's being painted by BF Goodrich @ PAE. I have no info on what it will look like.

Yes Delta does have a fine paint facility in ATL. We currently are painting 757 in one of the bays. A second bay is used for contract work like World MD11 letter check. Unfortunately we can't paint in the third bay unless we shut down the 757 line. I was told it's due to ATL metro being a high smog area. If we were to run two paint bays at a time we would exceed our VOC emissions in ATL. So we have to pay twice as much to have Bf Goodrich paint our 767 and 88 fleets. They have a line for each at PAE.
