What will Orbital ATK replace its TriStar with?

What will Orbital ATK replace its TriStar with once it runs out of life? Maybe an A330 or 767?

Considering the presumably super-low utilisation, it might not need replacing for many years.

Probably nothing. Pegasus lost its most recent launch contract to SpaceX. Not the brightest future there, esp if they have to find another launch aircraft.

Virgin Galactic is using a 747-400 for their launch vehicle.
