Lockheed L-1011 TriStar 100 (L-1011-385-1-15) - Air Lanka - 4R-ULC (MSN 193P-1053) - Frankfurt Rhein/Main Airport (FRA) - 1990s.

Air Lanka started flying in 1979, taking over routes from Air Ceylon. In 1980 it introduced its first TriStar to replace the Boeing 707 on long-haul services. Air Lanka operated a total of five Lockheed TriStars, new from the factory. Two of the aircraft were of the short-body TriStar-500 version. In 1999 the airline changed its name to SriLankan Airlines. The TriStars were replaced since then by Airbus A330s and A340s.

Lockheed TriStar MSN 193P-1053 was originally delivered to All Nippon Airways in December 1973 as L-1011-1, TriStar-1. It was taken over by Air Lanka in January 1981 as 4R-ALF and in February 1983, it was reregistered 4R-ULC. Later in 1983, the aircraft was converted to L-1011-100. It was withdrawn from use in 2000.
