Delta's Last 767 Widget

Mon Aug 09, 2004 6:30 pm

I believe N133DN is the last 767 in widget form. About 2 weeks ago I flew out of ATL and noticed it sitting outside TOC. Seems like a bad sign, I'm guessing she's getting repainted?

Too late.....133 is a Deltaflot with a "Heritage" Widget. Ship 134 is in overhaul now and will be painted next.
This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

What about the 762's that were out in the desert? Didn't they come back in widget livery?

DL_Mech, not to get off subject, why are there still MD90's in the widget, I would think they are new enough to be kept up a little better.

Staying with the 'Widget' theme....

Didn't I see on here a few weeks back that DAL was down to just a small hand full of MD-80's in 'Widget'..?? I saw one here in Nashville on Saturday...still pretty cool looking. Is DAL repainting the '97' scheme too...? I seem to be seeing less and less of them as time goes on here in BNA.

I also saw a DAL 767-300 in town to pick-up the Falcons after their game with the Titans and an American Eagle CRJ...!! Both rare here.

Sorry I guess I meant ship 134.

I've seen a few MD90's at MCO in the widget color, and a few MD88's here and there in ATL. Such a great livery.  Sad

Can someone explain the 'widget' livery? I'm not connecting the dots, so to speak.

Thanks.

The 'widget' is just the old fin livery you see in these pictures.

And AGAIN can anyone tell me if the MD-11 parked at ATL is ever going to be repaired and fly again?

The MD-11 ship 802 parked at ATL TOC probably won't fly again. The heat treatment of the rear spar was affected by the fire. I don't think a final decision has been made but unless Delta finds someone to take over the lease and pay for the repairs it'll sit there until it's scrapped.

Ship 802 was towed over to Delta North were a Boeing Team will repair it. It has been tied up with the insurance company.

My mom flew on 133 (I think) around a year ago, and it was DIRTY!!!! I like the Widget and all, but, unfortunantly, the planes in Widget need new paint jobs BADLY! I think they should repaint the widget on the planes and not worry about new colors.

Thank God the days of the old widget livery are numbered. I understand that many people are fond of the old paint scheme, but lets face it, image is everything to an airline. The old widget scheme is very outdated, which gives the image of Delta having old aircraft.

And here is one of Delta's first classic 767 widgets. Probably one of the most beautiful Delta aircraft photos I have ever seen. Delta certainly has not been that classic airline in a long time. Hopefully that will change with the upcoming reorganization announcement that will be released soon. Good bye to the Widget and hopefully hello to a new and better Delta.

D950 - Regarding MD-80s in the Widget scheme: I might be off base here, but if the planes are new enough, maybe they are waiting for them to go through D-checks before repainting? Especially considering their current financial status?

Saw ship 133 at FLL on Friday - I miss the old widget but it's also nice to see a freshly painted aircraft.
