N103CK has been ferried to OJAI for heavy maintenance, N102CK awaits a test flight and will also be ferried for maintenance. These aircraft will be placed into service in 2002. The other four L1011-200F aircraft await disposition.

All of the KHI aircraft were acquired by Caribjet, and were supposed top have been delivered at the rate of one every two months. I understand that the two aircraft which are being put into operation by R&R Aviation will be based in SE ASia ... right, 411A?

Well Ceilidh, that was the plan, however the new owners have the first two aircraft destined for another carrier (E Asia) and they do not want to terminate the rear spar AD prior to delivery. As the aeroplanes would be leased, it would be the owners responsibility to deliver them with a fresh 'C' check and all service bulletins complied....but I think the new owners have run short of cash and are looking to place the aircraft where the relevant aviation authorities are more lenient in their interpretation of required maintenance. In addition, the end user in East Asia has no spares, certainly NOT a good sign. Time will tell.
