History Of The Spirit Of Delta(N102DA)

Fri Mar 03, 2006 10:55 am

The spirit of Delta is flying its last flight on friday march 3rd. I noticed that it has seen a few different paint jobs. I have pictures of it in the different schemes and tried to make a rough history. If anyone has any interesting history about the plane or a good story please share.

From 2006

Thanks a bunch for sharing this info! I will be on the flight tomorrow from ATL-ATL. My grandfather got seats and I am really looking forward to it as I have never been on 102 before! I have enjoyed seeing it all these years and it will be missed.
