Shanghai Airlines' B-2876

Our September edition of "HNL RareBirds Classic" goes back to April 2005, with Shanghai Airlines' 757-26D, B-2876 (c/n 33967, l/n 1050) departing Runway 8L, on its next delivery flight leg to GUM.

B-2876 was withdrawn from service, and stored at VCV in November 2014. Two months later, it was acquired by Boeing Capital as N338BC. Delta Air Lines bought this 757 in April 2015, and re-registered it as N823DX, five months later. It had Blended Winglets installed in early 2016, and entered service in March of that year.
