air transat L-1011

Recommended Posts

Great shot! Every time I see an Air Transat aircraft, I think of the Airbus A-330 that glided to the Açores in 2002. With the L-1011, you loose one engine, you continue to your destination but you go down at fl220. You loose two engines, you get down to 8000 and then it's time to look for a decent airport in the area, while you still have one engine running and since the odds are that the fuel is contaminated and you're going to loose the third engine eventually...

Very nice TTM!  Been seeing a lot of L-10's lately.  Haven't seen the shorter -500 yet though.  I miss that plane, they were fun to fly on and great to work on too.  :(
