They may be retired from service now, but many of Delta's oldest 727 "shuttles"
came from their aquisition of Northeast Airlines, competition for Eastern's
shuttle on the Washington, DC - New York - Boston route (plus Portland, ME).
Shortly after the buyout, the red and blue Delta insignia began appearing on
the "yellowbirds" near the forward doors until the entire aircraft could be
painted in Delta's colors.
