Hi all- I was browsing through some photos yesterday and found one of the Flying Hospital at Tucson dated Feb 02. Anyone know the status of this ship (N10112, I believe)? I tried looking up the registration, which now belongs to an ATR I think. If it's still around I'd like to see it sometime. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It sits today in Tucson collecting dust. It has not flown since November 2001 and is registered P4-MED.

What is the deal with it? Having not flown for 2 years, has the operation behind it failed, or has there just not been a use for it, and they have it sitting there?

Is this aircraft the only existant L-1011 with the lower deck lounge and entry?

The aircraft, since it's conversion 7 years ago, has flown rarely. I'd say that I've only seen 15 or 20 days total that it's not been parked here. My opinion is frankly that it does not contain what is supposed to be inside. That is my opinion, I repeat, my opinion, as I consider the original (current?) owner to be a scam.

I reiterate opinion so go ahead and sue me `700' club.

And yes, it is the last of the PSA L-1011s alive today.

Scam? I have reliable colleagues who worked with the Flying Hospital project several years ago and it was far from a scam, although I'm not sure what you mean by "scam" so perhaps I'm mistaken.

I'll try to find out what I can. I took a tour of it at an airshow in Norfolk back in summer '97 and as I wrote earlier I'm acquainted with people who were close to the project in the '90s.....

Is this the L1011 that is owned by Pat Robertson of CBC Broadcasting???

By "scam" I mean, in this case, a project that seems great and provides nothing. The `700' club (Pat Roberstson) claimed to be raising money for an aircraft that would fly to crisis zones worldwide and provide medical care. I'll step out on a limb and say that of the many millions raised years ago, most went into the pockets of Robertson and his cronies.

The people who worked on the project with hearts open are as much victims as those who sent a hard to get $100 to this farce.

I support this statement by the fact that I've been by TUS almost daily for the past 17 years and not once was this aircraft unaccounted for. The logest being November 2001 when it was in Atlanta for 3 days.

I hate "christians" that scam the innocent.

Waiting for the lawsuit because I can prove my point, can Robbie?

Imisspiedmont:

You're probably wise to be skeptical about organizations of all kinds, but I think you're stretching it when you say the Flying Hospital provided "nothing." The medical professionals who donated their time and expertise to travel to third-world countries and provide much-needed medical care are to be commended for their humanitarian efforts. According to a journalist covering the story, $12,000,000 worth of medical care was invested in Kazakhstan alone, while only $600,000 was invested to accomplish that particular mission.To me, it seems well worth the trade-off.

I can't with any authority speak on the misuse or abuse of funds in this ministry. You might have access to revealing information. But at least there were well-intentioned health care workers who made a difference in the lives of the needy!

It was announced some time ago that it was to be purchased by a company in Kampuchea, and based in Pnom Phen.
AFAIK, the deal is still 'on'.

Damn shame...and considering Delta donated it's final L-1011, N728DL to them for PARTS, it's even worse....RIP Delta Belle.
