Airbus A330-200 (N861NW)


Delta's N861NW, an A332, is on the rise off RNO's 34L enroute to Alaska. The US Marines seated on the port side had a great view of downtown Reno as the big Bus was climbing out. The departure was delayed for a short time so some green anti-ice fluid could be sprayed on the wings. (If my memory serves me correctly, I think FA member Sam K. once related that the green colored mixture is called "Type IV Anti Ice" while the red mixture is "Type I De-Ice". The green mix used on this DAL fleetbird's wings can be seen ... slightly ... on the port wing and the reflection of the green color from the starboard wing can be seen on the fuselage.)
