Ex-TW 757 in new DL colors

To round out a busy day, DL has started to use their ex-TW 757s to fly their early LAX flight, DL1579/1566. The schedule is showing that the 757s started on Nov 7 until Nov 15 on Wednesday and Thursday. It will then return on Dec 5, again on Wednesdays and Thursdays only.

Pictured above is N706TW (c/n 28165), a 757-2Q8, that was originally delivered to TWA, and then onto American Airlines, after TW was merged into AA. Once acquired by Delta, it received the Aviation Partners Boeing Blended Winglets® and DL's new colors.

I absolutely love the retrofit winglets on the 757 - which was already one of my all-time favorite designs.

Love the new livery. Very distinguished-looking.
