Slightly off the flag topic, but was this hangar originally built/occupied for/by Western (WA) before the merger with DL? Or was this built after the merger?

It was built in 1988 for Delta after the merger.

Even from a far off view it is the dominant feature at SLC along with the 300' ATC tower:
Big version: Width: 2000 Height: 1333 File size: 203kb
Delta Hanger is the dominant feature at SLC

Actually, this scene doesn't exist. Ship 6708 is in the Song livery at the moment. The flag, however, is still there. It was made possible by $20,000 in donations by SLC Delta employees after 9/11.

What sort of checks, and mx does Delta do in SLC?

OT: Does anybody know anything about the Delta hangar in CVG? It always seems vacant when I've been there.

757 A checks and HOV(basically a flight control lube)
764 service checks (same as an A check)
MD-90 service checks and HOV
738 service check
Engine changes, sheetmetal repairs, fuel tank mtc., etc.

It is identical to the SLC hangar and they do similar work, I'm not sure which checks on which aircraft though.

One thing about both hangars is that most of the checks get done at night and with the exception of the HOV can be done at the gate. This may explain why you haven't seen any aircraft in the CVG hangar.
