Great picture - of hail damage. Sustained on approach. Had to replace the radome and one of the two center windshields. The paint has long since been repaired (removed, then resprayed).

Just found out this aircraft has been retired...apparently to Dothan, AL according to DLTERM

Yeah, just a badass workhorse...sure she's now neatly reapainted and carries the Delta negative space widget on the fin.

Dirty or clean, painted or not, the 757 is still the most graceful and noble plane ever made.

Like they always say, never judge someone by their looks

This bird has certainly been working hard since it was made in 1990.
| A visitor from - posted Tue September 13, 2011:|
She reminds me of the donna summer song "she works hard for the money"
| A visitor from - posted Sat August 27, 2011:|
Looks great after all she's been through!!!
| A visitor from Australia posted Wed August 10, 2011:|
What a great, hard working machine. Most always the scruffy ones & the ugly ducklings in the fleet go the best!!
| A visitor from - posted Tue June 14, 2011:|
She's still flying and in new colors now
| A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon June 13, 2011:|
Looks quite awesome cause the severe damage on the paint
| A visitor from Guatemala posted Tue May 17, 2011:|
Gives her charactor though, that is for sure. Some airlines invest heavily in maintenance in sacrifice for looks.
| A visitor from Canada posted Fri April 15, 2011:|
Wow! She looks tired! This was taken in '04... I wonder if she's still in service? Then again, fresh coat of paint and she'd look good as new.
| A visitor from - posted Fri April 15, 2011:|
It really needs a good painting! Shame on Delta Airlines. And I can't bear Americans who criticize Air France without checking their own Airlines!
| A visitor from - posted Tue August 10, 2010:|
Omg love this hard working machine!!! DOES ANY BODY KNOW HOW OLD IS THE Boeing 757-232?
| A visitor from - posted Fri July 30, 2010:|
Poor thing, must have worked really hard!

Paint isn't matter as long as good maintenance on aircraft happens. but i only gave 3 star because i want a nicer paint job.
| A visitor from Sweden posted Sun June 6, 2010:|
I can take it if someone don't want it
| A visitor from United States posted Sun May 16, 2010:|
You should see some of Uniteds Planes that look far worse than this...
| A visitor from United States posted Mon May 3, 2010:|
Looks like the space shuttle after re-entry.
| A visitor from United States posted Thu April 29, 2010:|
Pic brings out the 757's true beauty, even without makeup. delta?? At least she flies.
| A visitor from - posted Sun April 25, 2010:|
They must be waiting for the scheduled repaint in the new livery... logically you wouldn't repaint a plane in the old colour scheme just to make it look good... but i feel for that pooooor 757... shame on you delta!
| A visitor from Mexico posted Tue March 30, 2010:|
Her makeup is a little bit off, but i'd still beg her to go out with me! OM5
| A visitor from - posted Mon March 15, 2010:|
Hail storm scratches I think. .
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu February 11, 2010:|
Poor 757... i would hate to see NW planes end up like this :(
| A visitor from United States posted Wed December 23, 2009:|
A hard working horse for sure!
Looks better than any airbus man.
| A visitor from Mauritius posted Thu December 3, 2009:|
Airbus is way beter than any Boeing aircraft in the world!
| A visitor from - posted Wed December 2, 2009:|
Wow ! Who was talking about Air France ? This plane really needs a paint job ... Very dirty ! POor 757 ! Delta , you have to paint it !
| A visitor from United States posted Sun November 22, 2009:|
No my friend! It doesn't look better than the best looking airbus!
| A visitor from - posted Thu November 12, 2009:|
Probably just getting repainted soon w/ new scheme.
| A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed October 28, 2009:|
Hard working girl!
| A visitor from United States posted Wed September 9, 2009:|
And yet it still looks better than the best-looking Airbus . . .
| A visitor from Spain posted Sat August 1, 2009:|
Must be a codeshare with AF.
| A visitor from United States posted Tue June 23, 2009:|
I have never seen delta airlines planes look that bad. this might have to do with delta loosing alot of money
| A visitor from United States posted Sun March 8, 2009:|
This 75 looks like it brings it's lunch pail to work everyday, nice shot
| A visitor from Australia posted Tue January 27, 2009:|
"she works hard for the money..."
| A visitor from - posted Mon January 26, 2009:|
I'll fly in it as long as the engines are running fine
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed December 31, 2008:|
Final destination material me thinks
| A visitor from United States posted Sun December 7, 2008:|
I think a good wash and a new paint job is long overdue :P
| A visitor from Germany posted Fri November 7, 2008:|
Poor 757, shame on Delta.
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu November 6, 2008:|
Looks like she's been in a fight , still the best looking nose out there! Hail or rain damage me thinks , the radomme looks to be new and the rest of the paint ain't too bad !
| A visitor from Germany posted Thu October 23, 2008:|
OMG! I would not be surprised if passengers refuse to fly with that bird! Poor 757! Shame on Delta!
| A visitor from - posted Tue July 29, 2008:|
I love that this photo shows the "True Grit" of aviation, its not all pretty megaliner roll outs!
| A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri April 4, 2008:|
I work at an aircraft paintshop at Schiphol and this one sure needs to visit one! Not the one where I work though, we can't get it in, it's too big :P
| A visitor from Germany posted Sun July 15, 2007:|

| A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat June 30, 2007:|

| A visitor from United States posted Mon January 1, 2007:|
This bird needs a good painting. don't ya think?
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun October 1, 2006:|
Ou can see shes real work horse! Delta need to show some love! like BA! lol
| A visitor from Australia posted Sat September 16, 2006:|
Hate to think what the inside was like.
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun August 6, 2006:|
Such a shame - the 75 is such a lovely looking aircraft. Says a lot about Delta, methinks.
| A visitor from Hong Kong posted Thu August 3, 2006:|
Lovely shot, really reminds me of the Delta bird that crashed into the terminal (you know, the famous picure)...
| A visitor from United States posted Thu July 6, 2006:|
Mangy is right! Looks like a junkyard dog
| A visitor from United States posted Mon June 12, 2006:|
you would think that Delta, the worlds Greatest airline (in my oppinion) would keep up thee planes a bit better than that.
Oh well, at least its not an airbus LOL
| A visitor from United States posted Thu June 1, 2006:|
Must have been a bad hail storm or the black birds were swarming again.
| A visitor from United States posted Fri February 24, 2006:|
Delta dirty? that is something Northwest Airlines is good at, sometimes the paint chips on their RJ85s or DC9s look like snow, kinda confusing for the deicing teams,hehe
| A visitor from - posted Sun December 4, 2005:|
Great photograph, but that's one dirty bird! Sell her to me and I'll clean her up--LOL!
| A visitor from Germany posted Sun December 4, 2005:|
Well, that's not wear and tear, that is abuse and negligence
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 29, 2005:|
Need a Paint job
| A visitor from United States posted Wed November 23, 2005:|
Underneath all the grime still stands a pretty little bird.
| A visitor from United States posted Sun November 13, 2005:|
That's the dirtiest bird I have ever seen in Delta's fleet. 5 stars for the shot, but she needs some love!
| A visitor from South Africa posted Thu September 15, 2005:|
It is graet to see how wear and tear affect aircraft.
