Tristar preservation project in USA

Post by andygolfer » Sat May 16, 2015 7:44 am

EDIT - split from this topic: http://www.civilianaviation.co.uk/forum ... =6&t=21386

I got distracted and I looked at other Victorville photos and noticed this one: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Lockheed ... ff20e71937 I wonder why it is being re-painted and moved to Kansas City - for preservation?

All right... all right... but apart from better sanitation and medicine and education and irrigation and public health and roads and a freshwater system and baths and public order... what have the Romans done for us?

Many thanks for that info.

Mainly initiated by my own post this has gone off topic from the original subject (self slap on the wrist :blush: ) so to keep things tidy I will split this topic into 2 different ones, the original subject and another re the Tristar preservation as that will probably be of interest to several (or more) forum members

Great news to hear that a Tristar is being preserved. Their other projects are equally interesting.
