Cargo/Military L-1011 At SAN On 6-30-07?

Sun Jul 01, 2007 9:46 am

Don't flame me if I get this wrong, but I only caught a glimpse of something today as we were driving past the airport on I-5. I thought I saw a three-holer located near the cargo ramp area between Jim's air and the cargo ramp. It was in what appeared to be a military gray with a small logo.
If anybody knows anything about what this is, can you either correct me (kindly) or confirm if there actually is a rare bird here in Socal.

a three-holer ... in what appeared to be a military gray with a small logo

Possibly an RAF TriStar?

Since this was at SAN, I'd guess it could have been a USAF KC-10.
