Yo i like that a hell alot better then the current one. Thats a good question were the heck is it at. Speaking of color schemes i would like Alaska Airlines to put the Alaska.com livery on all planes but take the .com off. Have a good day....... Brian

That was just an experimental scheme used briefly. I wouldn't swear to it, but I THINK that was the only aircraft painted that way. There was another experimental scheme introduced at that same time. Mainly white if I remember correctly.

NW also applied an experimental scheme to a 752. although not as bold as the DC-9-50 (which looked great).

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

NW also had another DC-9-50 that was similar to the picture above, except the grey was darker (same as current NW scheme) and the lettering was white.

It was an experimental color scheme in the early 90's and they took it away when they decided on the livery that they have today. The DC-9-50 had it and one 757 had a similar one too.

The DC-9 c/s looks much better than the one they have today.
