Delta Airlines 767-232, N102DA Spirit of Delta was the first 767-200 operated by Delta and will be the last to be retired. In preparation for its retirement, it has been painted in the livery it wore in 1982. Spirit of Delta made a last tour of the United States before it is retired to a Museum in Atlanta, Georgia. It arrived at Los Angeles International Airport for the last time on February 27 in a major rain storm.
