I was looking at some 1980's Hawaiian Air photos at LAX. It showed one there L1011 Tristars operating from there terminal 2 location. I also looked at some of there DC8 62 at LAX. In the photos it was stated that Hawaiian Air operated there DC8's out of the Imperial terminal. Did they spit up there L1011 and DC8 operations at LAX? If so, why?  confused

Prior to the arrival of the L-1011s and the West Coast scheduled service network HA operated DC-8s extensive military and civilian charter service.

Such charters continued with the arrival of the L-1011s so it certainly would not be odd to see HA at the Imperial terminal.

Also keep in mind prior to the opening of TBIT in 1984, the Imperial Terminal was sort of low cost/charter facility with carriers like World, Trans America, Capital, Condor and LTU making home of the facility.

I recall seeing HA's DC-8's operating from gates in Terminal 3, in addition to gates in Terminal 2 during the early 90's.
