Lockheed L-1011-250 Tristar

L-1011-250 Tristar is a mid-range passenger aircraft developed by the American company Lockheed.

The long-range variant of Tristar, but with fewer seats, the L-1011-500 entered service in 1979. Having begun the retrofitting of some aircraft of the previous series, designated L-1011-250, Lockheed created a real competitor DC-10-30 not only in range but also incapacity. The L-1011-250 was first offered to airlines as such but was subsequently redone from the base model by bringing the maximum take-off weight to 231.3t and the fuel reserve to 119741 liters. The aircraft has an increased flight range and can fly from the west coast of the United States to London, being a competitor to the DC-10-30 aircraft not only in range, like L-1011-500, but also in the payload. Converted six aircraft for the American company Delta. The first aircraft was converted in November – December 1986 and the last in April 1988.
