A special, special aircraft and moment for me. I turned up to the airport, to meet my best friend, KC. We drove around and saw this beauty parked. We imagined that possibly, hopefully it would leave at some point in the day. KC had to leave to catch SQ11 to SIN. He wished me luck that I would get this oh so rare frame. When I saw it being towed out for departure, I was over the moon. I never thought that in 2010 I would have a chance to photogaph an L1011 in action. One word : WOW!! [Nikon D3]

Nice colors! I think Sands Casino uses their jets to pick up the Highrollers or "Whales" as well as company executives. They have a 747SP as well.

What a site. This same aircraft was sitting in ANC for a week, I don't know if it still is. I'll have to check it out, as I drive into work.

Would be cool to have one as a private jet (which I'm guessing this is)
