All White B767 In Delta's Tech Ops Hangar.

Mon Apr 02, 2012 7:49 pm

As we were taxying to take off from ATL to SFO last night, I saw an all white B767 in the hangar at Tech Ops. Does anyone know if this is a DL aircraft being repainted or another carrier's? I also saw the B752 N624AG, so there are two unpainted aircraft inside.

Is this the ex-Varig 763 that has been mentioned in the past?

N624AG should be in there for a few weeks more, no? I know it came back to ATL about 3 weeks ago from storage and they had to do the HMV on it plus whatever cabin mods it was getting.

Wasn't there a report of what looked to be an ex-AC 767 at TOC a few weeks back? If so, could this be the 767 on question here?

The white-tail 767 could be DQ-FJC, which was returned to ILFC & flown to ATL.

You are correct. It is indeed DQ-FCJ.

It's still in work, and will be for weeks. Getting the records sorted out has been a big headache I hear. Currently it is gutted and only a few mechanics are working it while the inspection findings get sifted through and the records of previous work gets sorted out.
