They were maintenance pigs but a damn nice ride! One could come in for the night perfectly clean and by first flight in the morning have five write ups during pre-flight checks.
Sometimes, I dreaded the possibility of being assigned a "Tri-Pig" to work on but today I look back fondly upon them.

Funny how time does that.

Former TWA jet. Checkout the red "L-1011" on the #2 engine duct which was part of the TWA livery for this old, but great tri-jet.

Steve, you are correct. It is being repainted in TWA colors and I bit on the #2 engine duct paint.

She wasn't a TWA craft but I bet she has great stories from being at Pacfic Southwest, Aero Peru, Worldways Canada, The Flying Hospital and finally Tristar Experience.

Yes I see how they butcher these birds at Mojove even the Delta Tristars were in bits they should store some and put them in Museums around America

The people of Safford AZ would be mighty surprised to find out they are now in New Mexico. I wonder why the author thought the airplane was over New Mexico. Oh well, typical of shoddy aviation reporting.
