Was the L1011 the last plane to be given a name? Tristar.
I find all these numbers now so confusing. When a number is mentioned, ones brain has to go into a computer mode and sort out the numbers until the plane comes to mind, but with a name, Jumbo, Constellation,Vanguard, Comet, Concorde, Stratocruiser, Viscount, Caravelle,etc.,etc. immediately a 'picture' of the airplane leaps to mind. Anyone know why Companies stopped giving planes names? Just wondering, because such a rich part of aircraft lore has disappeared. Peter
