Re: If the L-1011 had only 2 engines, would it have been a success?

The problem is, there wasn't a sufficiently powerful engine for an L-1011 sized twin-jet in the early 1970s. I seem to recall later on the programme there was a proposal for a "Bistar" but it didn't leave the drawing board. V/F I am curious how can that be true as the A300 came on the sce...

Re: If the L-1011 had only 2 engines, would it have been a success?

Just a thought that crossed my mind. The Boeing 757 uses the Rolls-Royce RB211 engines, which is the same that the L-1011 used. The 757 is still somewhat efficient and in use, while the L-1011 is pretty much extinct. Yes, it is 60's and 70's technology, but it could have been upgraded. The whole re...
