Ever wonder what an A330-232X would look like in Delta colors? Wonder no more! Here is the latest NWA fleet member to be painted in Delta colors:

NWA A330-232X N806NW landing at AMS/EHAM on 03/22/09.  cool

As a native Detroiter, I'm going to be sad to see NWA disappear. But I guess that's evolution!   cry

call me old fashioned, but i like the old-old paint scheme that delta used.  the one from the 1974 pic up there.  i dont know why, but something appealing about it!  lol

Couldn't agree more! I LOVE the old paint schemes!

Deltas' "Widget" as it was called was a classic. Looked GREAT on the B747 and the L-1011:

The British Airways "Landor" scheme with the Coat Of Arms on the tail:
http://www.airliners.net/photo/British-Airways/Boeing-747-236B/1320781/L/&tbl=&photo_nr=6&sok=&sort=&prev_id=1325649&next_id=1303513

Continentals' "Meatball" scheme with all that gold:

Uniteds' red, orange and blue stripes:

Old school U.S. Air(bare aluminium with red stripes and blue tail):
http://www.airliners.net/photo/USAir/Boeing-767-2B7-ER/1255448/L/&tbl=&photo_nr=0&sok=&sort=&prev_id=&next_id=1238201

CLASSICS! All of them!

I miss some of the "long gone" schemes too.
Pan Am(any scheme):
http://www.airliners.net/photo/Pan-Am/Boeing-747-121/1457613/L/&tbl=&photo_nr=4&sok=&sort=&prev_id=1474675&next_id=1452101

TWA(red and white, not the last scheme):
http://www.airliners.net/photo/Trans-World-Airlines/Boeing-747-131/1445303/L/&tbl=&photo_nr=1&sok=&sort=&prev_id=1452251&next_id=1429234

Braniff and all their crazy colors:

Ozark:

North Central. Truly a classic:
http://www.airliners.net/photo/North-Central-Airlines/McDonnell-Douglas-DC-9-31/1102195/L/&tbl=&photo_nr=11&sok=&sort=&prev_id=1123919&next_id=0813373

Northeast(The Yellowbirds):
http://www.airliners.net/photo/Northeast-Airlines/Boeing-727-291/0784930/L/&tbl=&photo_nr=11&sok=&sort=&prev_id=0786259&next_id=0769554

Air Florida:

PSA. This one is of my favorite Turboprop of all time-the Lockheeb L-188C Electra:
http://www.airliners.net/photo/PSA---Pacific/Lockheed-L-188C-Electra/0865643/L/&tbl=&photo_nr=3&sok=&sort=&prev_id=0866050&next_id=0822608

New York Air:

The list goes on and on!

I do have a bunch of old pics, but they are in photo form, not on my computer. I have some old Pan Am stuff (A310s and B747s), some TWA, I have old school United and NWA (Orient scheme), Usair, British Airways, and a TON of Delta in various schemes. All kinds of pax birds. Also a bunch of different freighter pics. I'd have to go look thru them to list everything I have. But like I said, they are hard copies, not digital (one of these days I'll get my scanner working! wink). The website I link to, www.airliners.net, is FANTASTIC! Here, I'll link you to the search engine, from there, you can look for what ever your heart desires! There is also www.jetphotos.net. Happy Plane Looking!  grin
