Back in the late 80's (pretty sure) I was waiting to pick-up a family member at the gate in IND when an ATA L-1011 went rolling by, this aircraft had the TWA red stripes but ATA lettering. Obviously ATA had obtained from TWA I presume. Where did the ATA L-1011's come from? Was ATA the original owner on any of them? I believe they currently have 4, how many total did they ever operate? Finally, are these aircraft eventually all headed for scrap? What a great plane, will miss seeing them when they are gone. Also, I don't believe any of the L-1011 will have the new livery painted on, is this correct? Any info is greatly appreciated.
