I am flipping through my photo albums as I browse the Forum. I came across a picture of a Northwest 757 with the aforementioned reg #. I believe I shot it in fall of 1997. Only it was an offshoot of the normal NW livery. It did not have the graduated blue stripe nor the red top. It also has the Northwest logo (the N/W surrounded by a circle) painted rather largely on the forward fuselage.
I was just wondering if that plane is still flying around in that livery, or if it's been repainted. Was that another one of NW's bungled attempts at a revised livery, or was there some other reason behind it?
