Love the comment by the captain about taxiing with square tires with his girlfriend in the right seat. :laughing:

Great videos cruising thru all the stored aircraft, like the Jetstar they pass in video number 5.

Those were great videos! :laughing: :laughing:

N700TS is a L1011-385. Pretty big difference between the L1011-385 and the -500. I made several flights on this aircraft before my father retired off the 1011 in 1988 with TWA. Sure miss the sounds and smells of the old beast. :smiley:

I made sure I got on one before they retired em at TW. I was on 11003 LAX - STL. I wish I would’ve been on more!
Since this is going to the museum at KC, Too bad they couldn’t put the red tylenol stripes or Double Globe back on it!

There are a BUNCH of people around the fence but alas, no airplane. We’ll see.

Might be a while yet. As of this posting, it still has not departed Roswell.

Short video of L-1011 has a few really cool shots. Check out the opening shot, and the closing clip of the engines without music. Advertisment for DVD’s for sale, but some good shots. That s-duct is super cool. 8)
