I while visiting my home town I drove by LAX and saw an unknown L-1011. It had blue strips and a blue tail with a beautiful gold emblem in it. It is parked by the intersection of Supuvada and Imperial. If any body know who this jet belongs to, please tell me thank you.
PS there also and ATA L-1011 parked over by the old TWA hanger. This is a good day for those who live in the LA area that like L-1011.

Quoting LN-MOW (Reply 4): The only 'unmarked' L1011 we have, is N163AT (blue tail but big ATA logo on the fuselage). And 163 has not been in LAX today ...
She's been at ATL and DFW several times in the past week (Doing AMC charters out of FRA to ATL, continuing on to DFW, returning to ATL, then back to FRA.), I think she went tech the other day @ ATL, as TZ sent in 757 a little while after the L-1011 came in, and the L-1011 stayed parked all day.

Yeah that plane has been here in LA more like two weeks. Any idea who it belongs to? I have seen it parked in DAL before. I know at ATA a few years ago we did a charter for the Saudi Royal's after one of there planes went tech. Perhaps this one? I know serval Saudi prince's and princess live throughout the US wouldnt be suprised if they are shopping in Beverly Hills this very moment..LOL
On another note what do you think they are paying in fees to keep that parked there all of this time?

As a fan of Tristars, I can tell you all it's one of last 2 Tristar 500s ever assembled by Lockheed before production ended. The Saudia family has both of these aircraft. I sure hope they'll stay in the family & flying for many years to come yet. Regards.

I remember when a Tri-Star first took to the air (so I was told at the time) in the late 1960's when I was a pre-teen. Then did a flyover of the Douglas DC10 plant in Long Beach, CA. My neighborhood was in that flight path. It was a low pass and exciting for us kids on the ground. You could read L1011 Tri-Star across the fuselage. Always will be one of my very favorite planes... to fly on or just to look at. Wish the RR strike had never happened. Lockheed would probably still be in commercial plane business today if that labor mess had ended sooner. K
