Could someone help me please?
I cannot find out what was the seat arrangement on PSA Tristars back in 1974/1976. Thanks  Smile

PSA's L1011's were all coach seating in a 2-4-2 arrangement. 2-4-2 was standard back then for coach seating on L1011's. That was before airlines figured out that they could cram 1 or 2 more seats in a row!

Also PSA's L1011 had a downstair lounge in the forward cargo hold just ahead of the galley.

PSA Lounge

Mon Feb 05, 2001 7:35 am

PSA's L-1011's did have that nifty lower level lounge for I believe luggage and just hanging out during the flight. (???) Anyway, a nifty thing about this lounge is that it required a faring behind the nosegear to protect its occupants in the event on a gear up landing. This fairing behind the gear was neat, because most airlines who owned the PSA Tristars after PSA (PSA only operated them for 2 years) kept the nifty lounge and made it really easy for us spotters to determine who the delivery customer was Big grin

Before C-GIES was Worldways, it was with AeroPeru under its original reg. #, N10112. The fairing is really visible here!!!

Here is another PSA Tristar, looking factory-fresh in 1975

Today, the only PSA Tristar still flying is N787M, which is Operation Blessing's "Flying Hospital." It was delivered To PSA in 1974 as N10112, then leased to AeroPeru, then sold to Worldways as C-GIES. It was then stored at Kingman for a while until being picked up and converted into a flying hospital complete with operating rooms, a pharmacy, etc. to give relief all around the world.
