Shouldn't there be a second DC10 in new colors now? It went in when N226NW came out, which was over 2 weeks ago. It is either N238NW or N239NW (different sources have cited different numbers). Any update to this plane, or has anyone seen it yet?

Don't you mean flight number 33 AMS-SEA. 31 is LGW to DTW.

Oddly enough I just saw that NWA 31 from LGW-DTW diverted to YYR to due a medical emergency. Always something on those international flights.

Pretty sure I caught it leaving SEA today on my way to work. If it's the only 10 NW has repainted then I did. Very impressive livery on the 10, it was climbing out of SEA and came out of the clouds above BFI. Funny I had just read this thread before I left, and made a point of looking for it.

So if it's operating NW33 to SEA that means its going to be operating NW927 to OGG then it will operate NW926 back to SEA, NW925 to HNL and finally NW924 to SEA if I'm correct.

What time is #1229 going to leave DTW today. Slight odds I can stop by and see it.

If NW is putting it back in service, it may operate NW32 to LGW or NW48 to AMS.

If N226NW is the only one in the new colours then I also saw it at LGW on Wednesday (21st).
I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...
