Its the NW/KLM Alliance paint scheme. It was painted on a DC-10, I think, to say something about their alliance. My 2 cents.

Happy Holidays.

They removed it because it confused ATC and other aircraft around it. "Speedbird 577 Heavy taxi behind KLM DC-10." Then it would chnage to NW and everyone would get confused.

Please, when you're going to put a URL that long in the forum, use this format: http://www......., then we don't have to write all of that down. It will highlight and underline it and make it "clickable" Thanks, Merry Christmas!!!!!!!
