Delta Air Lines Brings Spirit of Delta Aircraft to Dallas/Fort Worth


Spirit of Delta will fly around DFW one more time for customers, employees and local charity

In 1982, Delta employees, retirees and friends began collecting donations to purchase a plane for Delta in support of the company in the midst of a weak economy and poor economic performance. The Spirit of Delta, as it was later named, has come to be a symbol for Delta’s heritage.

The Spirit of Delta was Delta’s first Boeing 767-200 aircraft and was purchased for $30 million.

Delta is bringing the Spirit of Delta to Dallas/Fort Worth as it embarks on its final tour through the Delta system as a thank you to Delta employees for all of their hard work and dedication. The aircraft will conduct a “circle flight” with employees, customers and representatives from an important local charity for Delta, the American Cancer Society.
