Another NW DC-10 Getting The New Livery

Sat Dec 04, 2004 10:54 am

I know how some people take a lot of interest in this.
Plus its always good to see the workhorse -10's getting new paint
Further showing that NW is still committed to keeping some of their DC-10's into the future.

NW may still be committed, but for how much longer internationally? Is there a set date when the NW DC-10s are going to be withdrawn from international service?

They will keep using them into the near future. They are going out as the A330's are coming in. The 10-s look great in the new colors though in my opinion...the 330's are nice too.

I agree that the DC-10s are beauties in the new colorscheme. It's a shame they are being withdrawn from international service just as they are being painted in a new, beautiful livery, and will be gone within probably six years or so at the max I'm guessing.
