Okay, I talked to my girlfriend about an hour ago and she reported that she saw a Delta L-1011 taxiing to runway 27 at CVG around 9:45 this morning. Now the last time I checked Delta retired their final L-1011 (N728DA) on July 31st in Atlanta while I was at the party at the Delta TOC.

I dunno if Dayna is trying to pull me leg or what.

Anyone at CVG Know anything about this?

Please Advise,
N728DL

If it was there it wasn't in passenger service,
Perhaps it was DL33, and MD 11 that took off out of CVG at 9:08AM toward LAX.

Ah! Ask her if she sees the engine straight out on the tail if she doesn't see curve duct engine. Then!

Ya, When she first told me, I automatically thought MD-11. She confesses and says she was blind. LOL

I told her Delta didnt operate any L-1011's (I was on the last one they flew)

Thanks for the help Jessman/Big777Jet

They still fly L-1011s around just to do tests (as they do with alot of retired aircraft) But they are never carrying passengers. These are usually converted to Freighters... It sure would be Ironic if N728DA would have been converted into a Freighter.... or better yet, the Flying Hospital...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The a/c could be going to storage, or the place for conversion to a freighter.

Never, ever, correct a woman that tells you about an airplane she saw. Say "wow, thanks" and realize that she probably doesn't know. Accept the fact that she is trying to express an interest in your passion. More than once in my life I've had a girfriend tell me about a really strange airplane she saw landing. When we get to the airport it turns out to be the same B-17 (or whatever) I see 5 or 6 times a year. They always know I've seen it before, but they still appreciate the Thank You. It's a two way gift.


Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

Actually, N728DA is at Marana, being broken up to support the Flying Hospital.

She probably has mistaken an MD-11 for an L-1011.

Yep, Thats what it was. She's an aviation fanatic but she cant seek out an L-1011 like we can.

DL still uses them for occasional charter not under the DL name though.

Delta has retired all of their L-1011's. There are not any of them at any Delta base, and they have all been parked out west, most at the former George AFB (VCV). They do not have any back in ATL or CVG to use for charters.

Some have been flown to Marana, AZ, and speaking of Evergreen and Marana, did anyone read the article about Evergreen's Marana Base in last week's Time Magazine? It appears that there are real problems there with false records and shoddy work.
