For all of you that don't know, this is the last DL MD-11 in old colours. Can anyone tell when it will be repainted? I want to fly on it when it is in old colours. I am scheduling ATL-JFK for late July. Can you tell in advance what route this aircraft will be on? Thanks!

They will not know until like 2 days prior to the flight. I didn't know that was the last one left in old colors, I think the M11 looks best in those colors.

Yeah I accutally I saw here alnding on RWY 35C @ KDFW on Thursday June 6,2002 operating as Delta Flight # 177. She was soo beautiful landing nice and slow. Personally I like DL's "Widget" scheme the best!!

I saw ship 814 today at MCO in the early evening. I'm definitely going to miss the widget livery!

Why is it called the Widget Livery?

While DL's newest livery is growing on me, I whole-heartedly agree that the M11 looks best in the oldest color scheme.

Actually, I think there are two other Delta M11s still in the old widget livery - N806DE and N807DE - in addition to N814DE...

Panamair is correct, 806, 807 and 814 are all in old colors. I saw 807 and 814 side by side this afternoon on my way to work, and I saw 806 two or three days ago as she was pulling into a gate.

I saw N814DE at LAX a few times, I agree those colors suit the MD-11 very well...The old new colors look bad on it...and very boring!
Too bad AA doesnt use any more MD-11s I like that plane.. Big grin

Umm hello Flight Level
The widget is Delta's arrow shaped logo, shown here is the progresssion of Delta's brand.  Smile The original "Widget Livery" was surely the best, a very handsome livery.
