Whats the deal with the DHL aircraft parked at the edge of the airport perimeter at EWR? It has changed color too. It now has a yellow hue to it.

Does anyone know why it is there?

Try doing a search, this topic seems to come up a lot!  Smile I wondered about it for a while before discovering A.net!

The planes operate during the night. When driving by during the day, the planes look totally abandoned but if you drive by late at night they are usually not there.

They changed their livery, replacing the white with ugly yellow, yuck. Not sure about the actual reasons, but they are probally just parked there b4 they get loaded up and sent to their destinations.

The yellow reflects the colors of Deutsche Post World Net, which owns 100% of DHL.
