Delta New Scheme

Wed Sep 01, 2004 7:55 am

I spent the day in Atlanta this past Saturday. I only saw 2 Widget schemes the whole day: an MD-88 and a 767-200. The 767-200 had just arrived into Tech Ops, so that Widget scheme is gone. Sadly, the end of the Widget is very near. It took a while, but I actually do like the new Scheme now, especially on the MD-88. It looks very sharp, I think because of the white engines. The colored engines don't seem to do much for the new scheme. The MD-88 actually looks even sharper with the old Widget applied (See below). Where have you seen other Widget Schemes lately?

I've seen a few 'widget' MD-80's here in BNA over the last few weeks, but I hear they are only down to 3 or 4 left in the fleet.
