    Well, at least in this cool time-lapse video you can see here, on Delta's blog.

    The 3.5-minute video speeds up footage of a NWA Boeing 747-400 being primed, repainted and otherwise prepped for departure in shiny new Delta livery.The whole process of protecting the aircraft to apply different areas of Delta's signature red,blue and white colors is pretty incredible -- a nice behind-the-scenes look!

    Here's the finished product, making its first takeoff.
