That would be a "white tail", jet was constructed before McBoeing knew who
was going to buy it.  Very rare occurance, but possible if the customer is
a leasing agency.

McBoeing applies airline colors to each jet prior to the first test flight.

It's called a 'slick' because it does not carry armament for attack
purposes. Usually just a machine gun manned by the crew chief is the only
weapon carried.
