Erasing history

Tucked within Delta’s Airline’s Web site is this video with a time-lapse look at the end of the red tails of Northwest Airlines.

In short order, it’ll be almost like they were never here.

BTW, it takes 12 days to paint a 747.

    Mindblowing. How large is their fleet?

  • Thanks for sharing Bob, amazing stuff. Breaks my heart to see the change…my 3-year old son and I spent many evenings at MSP watching the ‘red tails’ come and go..not sure watching the Delta fleet will be same.

    We’ve got our NW planes for a few more months, at least

    Thats pretty cool, in a sad end-of-an-era sorta way.
