    Got me wondering the same thing, so did some digging. Found a post on AirFleets talking about this from 10/28/10.
    Delta has painted most all Northwest aircraft in the new Delta livery now. The A-330-200s, A330-300s, DC-9-51s and the 5600 series of 757-200s are ALL painted now or in the paint shop presently. Less than 100 active Northwest aircraft still to paint... and they be finished in January.

    Delta will not paint any DC-9-30/40 aircraft, 747-200/Fs or 757-200 5500 series as they will all be replaced in 15 months or less.

    There are still lots of ex-NW owned regional jets to be painted. The CRJ-900s and most of the newer ERJs have the new DL livery... but many CRJ-200/700 and older ERJs yet to be Deltaized.
    Hope this gives some insight.

    Nice first pic of what it appears to be the ASOS (Automated Surface Observing System) and the snow plow with a metal edge (ouch)

    There are still 747's? I thought they were long gone.

    Great shots by the way. Very different landscape from when I was there in September.

    Think that statement means that they would not be painted, not necessarily that they are still in service. Kind of confusing for sure.

    If one of those comes into PHL Friday, that would be awesome- I'll be out there waiting to pick up the missus- she already has instructions to wave at the camera
