Ex-DL 737-200s "Songbird"?

Sat Dec 09, 2006 5:11 am

I've noticed an ex DL 737-200 coming into ATL on occasion recently. It still has the old DL registration and paint job, minus the wavy tail livery and Delta text on the fuselage.

They are operating a flight out of the south end of D concourse. Question is, who is the operator and where are they going? Their callsign is Songbird. Anyone know what's up? Thanks

Songbird seems to be a charter airline called Sky King, which does fly 737s. Couldn't find any pics in the livery you described, but there are some photos of this aircraft in the database:

Quoting DL763DFW (Thread starter):

I heard that callsign two Sundays ago in SJU. Didn't see the livery, but I know it was a 737-200 that came in about 1:30 or 2pm.

I was actually going to post a thread on this today- I saw it last weekend at D concourse in ATL, at one of the empty gates near NW.

It's N332DL, it's completely white except for the original DL cowlings on those JT8's...you could make it out all the way from E concourse. It was operating for SkyKing. Good to see those little noisemakers still there.

Great to hear the ex-DL B-737-200s have found continued airliner life.
