Royal and Air Transat's elusive L1011s

Thu Sep 14, 2017 7:37 am

Hey all, Air Transat had four TriStars for which there is virtually no photo record. Were they bought for spares only and never operated by the company? Anyone advise?

They are :

C-FWCR L-1011-1 TriStar 1099 NH
C-GTSY L-1011-1 TriStar 1037 EA / CX
C-GBBS L-1011-1 TriStar 1108 TWA
C-FTSI L-1011-1 TriStar 1032 G-BAAB Court Line / CX

Same question for Royal
C-FYXI L1011-1 1107 ex TW

OK that's really interesting, delivered to Air Transat in May-96, clearly painted up, then parked in Oct of the same year for scrap!

Was it only needed for the summer peak or to cover a D Check on another aircraft.

C-FYXI was acquired for spares, scrapped slowly at YQB. Never got painted.
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
