I seem to remember that those aircraft went from the manufacturer to the
storage yard . . I don't think that they ever used them.  I was flying in
California during the time that they owned them and I can't remember ever
seeing them in operation.

The cost of operating the L-1011 was apparently one of the reasons that
Douglas sold so many DC-10s.  We have a lot of the "Tritannics" at our
company . . they're Cadillac aircraft, but they're getting a bit on the
old side.
