I believe it was usually N102DA, "The Spirit of Delta" that they would bring to the shows, which is of course the 767-200 that was purchased out of the pockets of Delta's employees.
Not sure if they still have a dedicated airshow team, Doug would probably know.
"Hey, aren't YOU a pilot, buddy?"
Last year they had an Eagle 145 as well.
Yes and no. Ship 41 has a dedicated crew but supposedly any 767 pilot can bid, (or ask) to fly the airshow. However, in practice, unless you are a perfumed prince, you ain't flying no stinkin' airshow.
I have flown with a couple of guys that are part of the "Delta Airshow Team". The only way to become a part of it is to be an LCA (line check airman) or some other job from the Puzzle Palace. The reason why a regular line pilot can't fly it is because of the PWA (the contract). All airshow flights are Pro Bono and the contract says we have to be payed anytime we operate the aircraft. However, pretty much any employee can ride along as long as there are less than 19 pax.
How exciting that must be...
