Hello,

Have seen on globalplanesearch.com that there are 2 x L1011 (ex rich international) for sale for only $695,000
that is an absolute bargain.
i think it needs major maintenece but for that price and if i had the money....i would def buy one.

Who wants to lend me the money and help me do it up to bring this old bird back to life.

..........LONG LIVE THE TRISTAR........


Many thx

When it comes to airplanes, you usually get what you pay for. That bird might need all new engines (if it even has any currently), a D check, etc. Its probably not good for anything but spare parts and scrap metal.

Flyf15 is probably right, it has runout engines and needs a D check. About 3 million worth. I can buy a 727 in that range with a fresh C and Stage III.

Forget flying it...I think a retired L-1011 or B-747 would make a helluva cool nightclub!!!  Big grin

Break it up into segments, truck it to your vacant lot, reassemble the component parts, and start outfitting it for life as a bar!

I can see it now..."The Fly-By-Night" or something like that!

Who's with me?

I'll go for the Fly-By-Night. And a fresh 727 with C-check and Stage III.

If I had that type of money, I would turn one of those into a home and live in it.

A friend of mine (the drummer from Bad Manners, ska fans) was going to buy a DC10 and turn it into a recording studio, take the tops off the wings and turn the fuel tanks into swimming pools, accessible from doors 3L & R. The plan, if you'll forgive the pun, didn't get off the ground but I thought it was an inspired idea.

And if you were to pay 695K for a Tristar just to tuen it into a home/nightclub/restaurant I'd laugh my ass off. I have a friend that can get you a widebody (747/D10/L10/AB3) as is, where is for about $15,000. Just paln on spending another 50K to take it apart and transport it. Continental US only.


Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

You know, thinking about it, how much floorspace would you get with a Tristar?

I am remembering back to that fellow in Oregon who converted/is converting that old Olympic 727 into a house.
