(RARE!) Eastern Airlines Lockheed L-1011 Footage (Exterior, Cabin, Galley, Flight Deck)

Tue Jul 09, 2019 6:52 pm

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geWRUKC ... e=youtu.be

I found this video inside my closet and it was taken by my dad, who was an Eastern Airlines Flight Engineer, way back in 1986. I decided to post the L-1011 TriStar footage on Youtube in the hopes that it will bring nostalgia to some people.

The footage includes some shots of the exterior, along with a bit of a tour of the various exterior components, then to the cabin, then to the galleys (via the crew elevators!) and then proceeding to the flight deck and the flight engineer panel (where my dad sat so many years ago)

I couldn't figure out how to embed the video, so instead it's just a link to the page. Timestamps are in the description if you want to skip to a certain part.

Hope you guys enjoy!

I enjoyed the L-1011 footage. Thank you. I have yet posted 20-minute DC-9 footage I produced.

Outstanding post Daniel


The Tristar was one of the finest aircraft ever built, beautiful to look at, brilliantly engineered and a joy to fly as a crew member or passenger
The best contribution to safety is a competent Pilot.

Oh, the number of times I boarded an EA L-1011 at JFK in the 70s and early 80s - memory lane, right here!!

Thanks! Great video. The walk from the front to the back where the quintet of lavatories are seems quick in comparison from the front-to-back walks on the A346, B773, etc.

Would love to see more of JFK old T1. Surprising that a focus airport for EA had ground jetways and the terminal design was never materially updated.
