Sitting on the ramp in the background of this picture (left side, 5th plane down), it looks like there's a British Airways L1011. I thought BA stopped flying L1011's in the late 80's/early 90's?

Is this another carrier with a similar tail logo, or does BA still fly cargo routes with L1011's?

I believe that is an Orient Thai L-1011, not BA...

Look at the following:

The L1011 is Orient Thai. There tail is a big copy of BAs! easily mistaken from that distance, You were right about BA stopping L1011 services years ago.

Oh, thanks guys, I wasn't even aware of Orient Thai. How long have they been around?

BA's L-1011s never word that livery.

Anyway, good observation MTC. It would have otherwise never occurred to me that Orient Thai's livery is a rip off BA's current one...

AirxLiban,

I would not call it a "rip-off." These airlines are just using stylized versions of their respective national flags. No rip-off's here.
