Lockheed L-1011 TriStar 1 (L-1011-385-1-15) - Delta Air Lines - N725DA (MSN 193C-1162) - Miami International Airport (MIA) - 1990s.

Delta Air Lines was by far Lockheed's biggest TriStar customer. It flew seventy aircraft of the type, mostly L-1011-1s, and fifteen of the short-body L-1011-500. Delta received its first L-1011-1 in October 1973. It was the first airline to order the L-1011-500 and the first U.S. airline to fly this version commercially, on June 17 1979, from Atlanta to Frankfurt. It used the L-1011-500 primarily on its growing transatlantic services.

Delta performed its first commercial flight with the TriStar 1 on December 15, 1973, from Atlanta to Philadelphia. The airline operated the type until July 2001. The picture shows TriStar 1 N725DA (MSN 1162) taxiing at Miami Airport. The aircraft was delivered by Lockheed to Delta in February 1979. The aircraft never flew for other airlines. It was stored at Mojave in 1998.
