Provenance This model features a work-in-progress design by Landor Associates during development of two Delta aircraft paint schemes from 1994-2000.

Landor Associates designed Delta's "interim" aircraft paint scheme, or livery, which was introduced on April 10, 1997 in Atlanta. Delta’s triangular widget emblem was retained in its original form and appeared with new logotype and modernized cheatlines and tail paint. This was the first major overhaul of Delta's brand in over 30 years.

Just under half of Delta's planes had been repainted in the 1997 interim scheme, when it was replaced by the Colors in Motion livery, also designed by Landor Associates, and introduced in 2000.
