Is There Really A Difference?

Mon Oct 23, 2006 10:27 am

I saw a picture of a Delta 738 (N394DA) that has a semi-new livery...apparently the widget has been changed to a "more traditional hard angled triangle shape." Personal, I don't see a difference in the widget but you can be the judge.......

This is the "new" widget on the top ........the picture on the bottom is the old widget

Notice that there is now an actual "point" on the top of the red triangle, vs. only a gradual curve on the old widget. Same for the underside of the blue...

THANKS

Yes, I see a difference. Look at how soft the first one is and how sharp the second one is.

Quoting Jmr0991 (Thread starter):
This is the "new" widget on the top ........the picture on the bottom is the old widget

......and it only took two years for you to notice...?? It was about 2yrs ago that Delta went 'back' to the first Widget.
