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.

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.

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.
I am glad I was around to fly before de-regulation.
