The other TriStar thread got me thinking, with all the great memories I have both flying as a passenger as well as crew, what were your first and last flight? I know there's a lot of TriStar fans out there. As a passenger in 12/75: LAX-DFW-ATL and 2/01: ATL-SJU. As crew, ATL-LGA 09/81 and BOS-ATL 08/94. (Ah, the TriTanic!) Feel free to share the memories.  Smile


Ah, Summer, Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox and Beer.....

Only flown this amazing bird twice, would jump at another opportunity though!

First = LGW-MAH on Caledonian in summer 1996
Last = MAH-LGW on Caledonian in summer 1996

Not much, but it was certainly a beautiful plane!

My first L-1011 flight was on DL from DTW to TPA non-stop in the late 70's. That is when I fell in love with this plane. My last flight was in 2000 flying from MCO to ATL with my family on our way home from WDW. God I miss that plane. I love the space, and sound of it.

My first flight on an L1011 was with Aer Lingus (operated by Caledonian), from Dublin to Shannon; I can't remember what year - think it was 1992.

My last flight was with the RAF, on a CK1 (Tristar 500 tanker); we flew from RAF Brize Norton to ... RAF Brize Norton, on a six hour sortie, which involved meeting various other types for refuelling - a VC10, Nimrod, Harrier, Tornado, Spanish AF F18s and one or two others. That was a wonderful experience

How cool is that.....sounds like a memorable day. I have always been tempted to fly the ""scheduled"" service from Brize Norton to the Falklands just for the experience. The idea of spending a couple of days in the Falklands is not appealing....I have been to Port Stanley and seen the penguins!

I don't remember the date of my first L1011 flight but it was on AC from YYZ to YVR. It was the 100/200. The door lifting up into the roof, the coat racks that disappeared into the ceiling, the elevator to the galley, and the curve of bathrooms at the back were all memorable. I can remember the low groan/growl as the RR engines lit up. And then the puff of smoke from the water injectors. One of the most memorable was on a flight to YEG as a student going to stay with my grandparents for a could months. I posted this on a thread for childrens fares just the other day. I was on a Student Standbye fare, was one of the last ones to get a seat and was put in first class. They still had that little 4 seater table at the front. I got sat there and got the whole meal service with the white table cloth and everything. The last time was by accident. We boarded a 747 to fly to YVR for Christmas with the relatives. After an accident between the plane and a baggage cart, a weather delay, two hotel room stays and a diversion to YEG, we boarded an L1011 in Edmonton for the last leg to YVR. This was on a 500.

Now let me ask you something, are you still in that mood??? Or after all you accepted that you flew a quite rare airplane?

So many I can not remember .....

I have travelled extensively since 1973 -- more flights than I can remember ..

But I DO remember ...

The mid-plane lounges on the TWA TriStars!
Pan Am's -500's EXE - GIG ..
BA's -500's
DL and EA may times a year through the 70's and 80's ... both domestic (CVG, BOS, YYZ, ATL, DFW, SFO, LAX, etc., etc) and ATL -> FRA on DL

For the "last", 2 years ago I "flew" DL ship 727 (N727DA) that was donated for training to the FAA in Atlantic City while doing some cabin systems testing!

My favourite airliner of all times (even beats the Concorde I flew on!)
