I was looking though the the Tradewinds L1011 photos. The newest photos I could find was taken in 2003. Do Tradewinds still have Lockheed Tristars or did they retire them. If they did retire there L1011, did they traded them in for there new Boeing 747 200s.

All othe L-10's are gone in favor of the A-300 and 747-200's. At least two of their ex Tristars are here in GSO being dismantled.

Tradewinds sold their sole L1011-1F to Sky Eyes Airways of Thailand in Mar 2004.

West Air of Swaziland and Northeast Airlines (of the Middle East) have two of their old passenger L10s.

There is still 1 Interlease L10 at Greensboro. The ex-TWA, ex-Kampuchea and ex-Interlease L10s were all scrapped at GSO in the past few years.

So the answer is no. I was told they have 26 A300s and 2 747s with orders to purchase another 6 747s.

26 A300s? Wow, thats pretty substaintial. I had always thought that they had somewhere in the range of 5-10.

I believe the A300 count stands at 6 or 7. B747 is only two at the moment, ex Polar Air N922FT and N923FT.

Their A300 count was pulled from their website last year. They don't list it anymore. But last year, they reported having 23 and 1 L1011-1F.... since they bought those three ICG A300s, I figured the count only went up.
