No I don't think that special livery is till in operation. I just checked all NW
DC-10 pictures taken this year 2003, there are about 100 of them, all of them show the current red and dark gray livery with the thin blue line getting ticker as you move towards the rear of the airplane. Like IndustrialPate says, no DC-10's have been repainted in the latest livery.
Chances are, Jbmitt, it was a DC-10 that you saw because Northwest flies them out a lot out of AMS
. I'm sure it was wearing the livery I just described, from the ground you must have seen a white belly with the blue cheatline getting thicker, and white engine nacelles. Northwest will maybe repaint one DC-10 and one Classic 747 in the latest livery, not more, if they ever decide to introduce their new livery on those aircrafts.
