In the early 90's, American operated two (leased or borrowed) L1011's
for only a few summer months.  I saw these aircraft at DFW when I lived
in Dallas, and failed to take any pictures of them.  The tails were
painted light gray, but without the "AA".  Does anyone know the story
behind these odd step-children in American's fleet?  Why did they
arrive?  Can anyone produce a photo?
