The Spirit of Delta travels to CVG
The Spirit of Delta visited Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky on February 22 as the plane embarked on its final tour through the Delta system to thank Delta employees for their hard work and dedication. The Marvin Lewis Foundation representatives enjoyed a circle flight with Delta employees, retirees and local officials.
Cincinnati-based Larry Andrzejewski, duty manager-Line Maintenance, said that he recently ran across some old pay stubs from that period while cleaning out his dresser. He said they brought back a flood of memories about the grassroots effort to buy the plane.
"Through the years that special feeling has remained, knowing that I helped bring this aircraft to Delta," Andrzejewski said, "and knowing that, regardless of whatever happened, I would always be part of that Delta family."
