TriStar Experience L1011 Event

TriStar Experience has worked diligently to restore one of the last L1011’s and to save it from being scrapped. Our plan is to re-purpose this aircraft in a second career as a training platform for STEM Aviation Education.
TriStar is asking you as either an L1011 enthusiast or a person that wants to assist inspiring the next generation to pursue a career in Aviation, to consider donating to our effort. As with any great project we have cost to cover and you can make a difference. Your contribution will be added to an engraved plaque that will be attached to the armrest in the L1011’s seating in our classroom locatred in the former First Class section. Each time someone occupies the seat, they will see this unique plaque representing your tax deductible contribution making this possible.

TriStar is restoring a Lockheed L1011 msn 193L-1064 N910TE to become a static based Aviation Educational Platform serving kids, school districts, Boy Scout and Girl Scout groups in the Midwest area. The aircraft is going through a restoration process at Tucson International Airport for ferry to Kansas City.
