After seven hours, Northwestern's red and silver was replaced with white, blue, grey, and gold. But one of the metamorphosis mechanics did one thing that Northwestern would be forever grateful for. Under her wing flap, he painted the NWA symbol, and the red tail next to it. Just like he had with Nancy, and supplied her with NWA livery to wear when at home.
"Well, am I ready?" asked Northwestern, taxiing out. "I think you look lovely, dear," John told his new wife. And for the first time in four years, Northwestern felt a hint of optimism for herself. She was excited for her first day serving with United, and very excited to find out who her pilot would be with United.
Her first day of work with United took place in January, 2014, and she waited in the staging hangar for her pilot to bring her to the gate

Northwestern, a young, relatively new to service 757 was heading back to her family's hangar after a day at work. She had been lucky that she had been assigned to one of the kindest pilots in Northwest airlines, one that was having his first official day as a pilot on her first day of service. The pilot worked hard, telling her all the commands, and she worked hard, flying at the fastest speed she could retain smooth flight at. But no matter how hard they worked, it always seemed like great fun. They rarely hit turbulence, and when they did, Northwestern did her best to safely nav
