Lockheed Tristar

Post by Cessna954 » Sun May 31, 2015 8:45 pm

I'm sure that I won't be alone with my appreciation of the Lockheed Tristar.

Here's a selection of my photographs, let's see yours.

I've got lots somewhere but here are a few really old ones for starters:
The demo Lockheed Tristar on it’s first visit to the UK (August / Sept 1972) I remember that it first landed at East midlands so that the Rolls Royce workers at Derby could see what the engines they were building we being mounted upon, it then visited Heathrow and Gatwick where it did several demo flights before appearing at the Farnborough Air show by which time it’s tail was painted in BEA’s colours (the old dark blue union jack)
Image

then Farnborough 1974, a PSA example demonstrating it's potential:

and another from Gatwick c.1976, a Delta example

i'll dig out more when I have time, thanks for starting the thread, one of my favourite airliners

here are some more Tristars from me, all scanned from negatives starting with another pic of Stansted's long term resident tug training Tristar G-CEAP taken back in 1998

the following were all from Heathrow in 1991

Air Portugal's CS-TEG

another Gulf Air example but of rather dubious quality

and then from Southend EI-COL in August 1998 soon after it's arrival on what was ultimately it's final flight

and all that remained of it in early March 1999..
Imagesouthend 03-1999 L.1011 EI-COL by Andrew Goldsmith, on Flickr
a rather sad end.

hopefully I can find some more with my next batch of scanning

A graceful aircraft compared to the DC10. Who remembers the saga of Rolls-Royce insolvency and the RB211 engine ?
