How Many Widgets Remaining?

I saw this photo:

And I saw not a single widget scheme in that pic. I was wondering how many AC in the DL fleet are still in widget colors, if any? If you know regs of those AC, that would be great.

There are no more operating widgets. They have all been painted. The last one to be repainted was N912DE (MD-88) and was done so in September.

There are a couple widgets in the desert, but we will never see those fly again, at least not with the widget. There's a 737-200 and a couple MD-11's sitting in the desert still in the old scheme. The MD-11's will most likely fly again, but would have the paint changed over to the new owners before doing so.
