That's the dirtiest bird I have ever seen in Delta's fleet. 5 stars for the shot, but she needs some love!

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

Such a shame - the 75 is such a lovely looking aircraft. Says a lot about Delta, methinks.

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!

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!

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.

Gives her charactor though, that is for sure. Some airlines invest heavily in maintenance in sacrifice for looks.

This bird has certainly been working hard since it was made in 1990.

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

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).

Wow it surprised me to see a DL plane looking that messy ... if it had been EA, i'd be less surprised .. their fleet always looked sloppy in their later years
