At IAD today, I was observing an ANA 77W coming in from Tokyo, and out of the corner of my eye, I saw an L1011 coming in. It was definitely an L1011, I instantly recognized the back engine. It appeared to be all black, but I couldn't tell. Anybody have anymore info on this?

Well, there are no all black L-1011's and none flew into IAD as far as I can tell from flightaware. Maybe it was a RAF one or possibly a USAF DC-10 you saw? The Sands L-1011 is kind of dark but it has a white top to it, so I don't think that was it.

I'm wondering if it's the RAF L1011 that departed this morning from YYZ? I saw it parked at the north end of the airport yesterday and supposedly it left a few hours ago. Hopefully it comes back sometime soon!

I thought it was a definite L1011, but maybe it was a KC-10.

It is an RAF L1011, serial 950. Currently parked at Signature Flight Support.

When you say they, do you mean more than one?

"They" refers to the crew.

RAF is frequently into IAD, as is the German AirForce. I'm expecting a Christmas Package from them soon!

LOL! It most certainly will be! It's from Schmidt in NUE.
