I was reading the L-1011 Book by Philip Britsles and at the end of this excellent section of accidents involving Trisstars-and the one caught my interest was the Eastern L-1011 N310EA crash in Florida Everglades in 1972.
Because N310EA's parts wer mostly intact, they were used for another production Tristar-the Eastern N318EA (now retired CX CR-HUI???) and passengers and crews have see apprition of Bb Loft and Don Repo.
I can only see these info, and can anyone one tell me more about this? Is there a book on this?

I know a lot about this crash. Tell me what do you want exactly, so I can respond to you.
And what do you trying to say??? Pax and crews have see apritiation of Robert Loft and Don Repo???? Loft died in that crash, it was his foult, he didnt pay attention to control panel and he wasnt monitoring instruments like he supposed to. Repo was just flight enginer who escaped from the aircraft after impact..

yea,....there is a book.....The Ghost of Flight 401 by John G. Fuller. Supposedly the FA's working in the lower deck galley have seen Repo's head in the galley, etc... interesting book. When it first came out (a while ago) Eastern ordered it off of the shelves...(so I've been told) see if Amazon.com has it....?!

Fly777UAl is correct about the book by John Fuller. Along with Don Repo, Angelo Donadeo, an deadheading EAL tech. specialist on the 1011, escaped the wreckage. Donadeo was luckier than Repo and survived. If anyone knows his whereabouts..please email me. I'm curious to know if he resumed his EAL job.
PS....I spoke with a few Kiwi flight attendants, who had previously worked for EAL. They both said that they know collegues who, to this day, stick to their accounts of seeing apparitions in the lower galleys on the 1011.....

Someone asked about the whereabouts of the survivor in the cockpit. A guy who lives down the road from me used to be an EAL mechanic. That Donadeo guy was his supervisor and according to him, continued his career with Eastern all the way to the end of the company. i don't know if this means until the strike or until the permanent shut down, but he said he definitely returned and was even going to write a book on the crash,
