Your Sunday Morning Jet Noise

A L-1011:



I liked flying on them. Still, the story was that once the airlines slowed down their speed to save fuel after the 1973 oil embargo, the Tri-Stars trimmed up a little nose-high, which made pusing the beverage and food carts hell for the flight attendants. I don't know if that's true or not.

Three engines should still be the standard minimum for transoceanic flying.

Delta never slowed them that much. The noon rush over the old AQN SW corner post for DFW featured a slug of traffic from the SW U.S., with a Delta flight from LAX always crossing SFL behind 15-20 other jets…by the time they got to AQN, that TriStar was always number one. About 400 miles, and that Delta absolutely ate them up…you always planned the sequence knowing that three holer was a-coming!
