1/200 Scale Lockheed L-1011-1 TriStar – Inflight200 IF10111116
Lockheed L-1011 TriStar
The Lockheed L-1011 TriStar is an American medium-to-long-range, wide-body trijet airliner that first flew on November 16, 1970, and entered service in April 1972 with Eastern Airlines. The TriStar’s entrance into service was delayed by two years due to engine delays and the financial problems of Rolls-Royce. The aircraft utilised advanced technology for the time, allowing it to be the first widebody airliner certified for blind autolanding. Production ended in 1984 with 250 airframes built, needing 500 to break even financially, Lockheed withdrew from the commercial aircraft market. The British Royal Air Force operated nine of the type, designated K.1, KC.1 and C.2, used in the tanker, passenger and cargo roles.
The airframe is mostly an aluminium alloy structure with a semi-monocoque fuselage and low mounted cantilever wings. The tail is a standard layout. The retractable undercarriage is a tricycle type with the main units mount in the wings, folding inwards into the fuselage; the nose unit retracts forward. It has a flight crew of three, two pilots and a flight engineer with seating for up to 300 passengers depending on variant.
It is powered by three Rolls-Royce RB211 high-bypass turbofan engines, one pod mounted under each wing and the third in the rear of the fuselage with air fed via an S-duct embedded in the tail and upper fuselage. The L-1011-1, the first production model, had a cruise speed of 963 km/h (598 mph) with a service altitude of 12,800 m (42,000 ft) with a range of 4,963 km (3,084 mi).
