What's going on with N91011

Thu May 28, 2020 3:47 pm

I have done research about this L1011 that has been sitting stored at VCV fully in tact since 2007 and have come up with:

- Owned by some preservation group
- Owned by Orbital for spare parts

Which is true? It doesn't seem like it was even touched, in the last photo of it uploaded to A.net

The Caption of this picture reads: "Ex-TAP waiting to be painted with TWA colors and to be moved to Kansas city."

Is that still going to be the case? Would be awesome to see it in TWA colors!

Every country has an airline. The world has Pan Am.

Seems odd that they would paint an L-1011-500 in TWA colors.
the truth does matter, guys. too bad it's often quite subjective. the truth is beyond the mere facts and figures. it's beyond good and bad, right and wrong...

That photo and caption is 5 years old.

This was reported to be the plan back then.
They switched it to N910TE as the Tristar to be moved to Kansas City and applied the TWA colours to N948TW.
