Delta Newsroom article:

I am incredibly sad to see the last American passenger operator of these magnificent aircraft retiring them. The Maddog will live in the hearts of pilots and aviation enthusiasts everywhere.

What do you think of the retirement?

Oh God. I’ve a road trip to get on.
Hearing the roar of those engines, watching them blast the houses adjacent to McCarran airport with their smoke on approach, and then watching its impossibly steep climb into the air… that’s gonna be all gone now. She will be sorely missed.

On a side note, are tickets available for that flight?
