Northwest Orient was an early and large operator of the 747. The polished bare fuselage and red tail were instantly recognizable and iconic for many years. When the airline became “Northwest” after the merger with Republic, the scheme was simply modified by dropping the “Orient” from the titles. Our decal set will letter a Northwest Orient or Northwest 747-100/-200/-400 in this scheme. Yes, the first three 747-400s were delivered in this scheme as well.
