Great airplane. Always enjoyed flying on one. Smooth.

I'm quite partial to this airframe. Was stationed in ROK for a year and made 3 Pacific crossings via Delta between Kimpo and Portland. Wide-body for comfort, seems like the flight attendants were always bringing food and a smooth and quite ride. So yeah. I have to say the Tristar is my favorite passenger plane. The 747 has it's advantages and I haven't had the privilege of a 380 yet.

Wish the L1011 was still flying.
What an aircraft. I always had seat 13A on Delta so I could hear those RB211's wail.
Thanks for the momories.

This is the very first aircraft that I ever flew on! I absolutely love this plane; the motors do wail like nobody’s business! This is one of my favorite airplanes of all time!

Delta, LAX to Atlanta, many, many, many times. Quiet, comfortable. Loved it.

I got to fly on a Delta L-1011 back in the mid-70's. I was maybe 5 or 6 at the time, it felt like the coolest thing I ever got to do. The plane was pretty empty - I remember I could sit almost anywhere I wanted, and there were lots of empty seats in the middle. The crew was super nice. Now here's the part I don't know if I remember right - we were flying from New Orleans to Little Rock and we made a stop in the middle in Shreveport - can that be right?

Sad they are outclassed... A really cool machine.
I flew the tristar as a F/O-N10112 and N10114-at Aeroperu from 1978 to 1980. Originally from PSA, the front cargo compartment was modified as a lounge bar that could be accessed from the passenger cabin. I remember my flight instructors at Palmdale Cap. Bill Smith and Jim Edwads.

Flew a couple of times during the 80ties with LTU L1011 from Düsseldorf to Miami with a refill-stop in Bangor BGR.
LTU used the Tristar regular for medium-haul flights. The refill to Miami was essential.

My Dad worked on the L1011 project and we got to watch the very first flight of the TriStar. I think it was out of Palmdale.

The internet sometimes just breaks my heart: "Preserved Aqaba, Jordan 26 Aug 2019 sunk into the Red Sea as a diving site for scuba divers at King Abdullah Reef dive site".

I miss this aircraft so much.

Not many people remember that PSA had 2 widebodies. One from LAX to SFO and the other from SFO to LAX. A lot of people wondered why widebodies on a one-hour flight, but there was always enough PAX to support it.

I taught the L-1011 avionic systems to our airline customers at the Lockheed factory school at our Palmdale training facility. The L-1011 was among my favorite Lockheed aircraft programs to work on. Along with the SR-71 and P-3 Orion programs. Great birds, every one of them.

Miss the majestic and mighty Tristar.

Simply put, IMO, the finest airliner ever built, bar none!

I was privileged to fly aboard her over a dozen times to/from Montreal to South Florida in the 70's,and early 80's on Delta's flagship livery of that era and loved every second of it. I even got to spend some time in the cockpit with the pilots a couple of times, something that would be unheard of today.

She's the safest, roomiest and most comfortable airliner I have ever been on.
I miss seeing her in the skies and also miss the sound those RB211's made, a sound like no other aircraft ever. It literally gave me goose bumps every time I heard her engines spool up and then the growl she made roaring down the runway.
