Are you sure it is camouflage?
I thought they were trying to beat AF in terms of "clean aircraft"...

Definitely needs a cleaning, but I love those Tristars.

No matter how dirty she might be, the L 1011 strikes awe within me
with her beautiful body.

Jeez, if smone would photoshop it in such a way, that it would be standing on its wheels in some deserted African old "airfield", with the engine cowlings partially taken off or such, but leaving the body of the plane itself as it is now, I would certainly believe that this old lady had just been done away with and has been standing there for years, rotting away... Even tho it almost hurts me to say such a thing.....

A very unique shot!
Leaving alone fighters, attack aircraft etc. - I wonder what's the point in giving a desert camouflage to the aircraft like this?
P.S. Love those TriStars, too bad they've become so rare these days.
