All I can say is WOW! That aircraft looks spotless, as if it just rolled off the assembly line at Lockheed. All spit and polished! This is definitely 5-star photo!

Right now I am doing my conversion exams to receive my country's CPL. One of these exams is called performance A, which is based entirely on the L-1011 performance graphs and limitations. It is nice to see one of these beauties still in full operation and not just reading about and working her performance graphs in some boring class. Thankyou

Great to see a Tristar still operating. I still miss seeing BWIA Tristars in my country in action.

What an amazing shot. Truly a beautiful aircraft. The lighting is perfect and very nice contrast with the buildings in the background. This will be a desktop on my computer.

Oh wow! Another 5 star picture from Mr. Rocha. These L-1011s are the best looking subsonic jetliners ever produced. I've heard pilots love them as they have a few technical features not found on other jetliners. Thank heaven the RAF seems to agree. Lockheed really knows how to build aircraft, and Mr. Rocha is becoming the "Lockheed" of A.net.
