I know there is a huge following out there who are in love with the L-1011. I've heard it referred to as 'ahead of its time' and 'more advanced than the competition.' I myself have no knowledge of this plane, other than I think it is the second best-looking airliner of all time (behind the 777). What made it so advanced for its day? Any info would be appreciated, as I have no technical knowledge of this aircraft.
