This is a Delta Air Lines 757 painted in the old livery. This paint livery is very close to the classic one that was worn by Delta jets through the 1960's and 70's. I'm not sure what the paint scheme is officially called, but I liked it best of any other Delta has used. It is 2 paint schemes used before the current one seen today. recorded in 2007.

It was too cold to perform the work in Calgary so the aircraft crew positioned to the warmer climes of Vancouver so the crews could work outside in relative comfort. This is probably the last visit of a VC10 to Vancouver, the last being in August of 2004. In this clip the aircraft is arriving back on stand after going to a remote pad for engine runs. A very special thank you to the RAF and crew of the VC10 for their kind help in making this filming possible. Enjoy the sounds of the Rolls Royce Conway engines! Filmed by Henry Tenby with a Sony HD HVR-A1U, edited in iMovie.
