  • Description

    New instrumentation will permit nearly-automatic landings in almost any weather. New spaciousness and comfort await the airline passenger in the "next generation" of wide-bodied jets that will dominate the decade. And new achievements in the state-of-the-art in aircraft manufacture promise a virtually unlimited service life.

    In the wide, wide passenger cabin, the designer's only limitation is his imagination.

    Lockheed's latest L-1011 TriStar--now being presented to airlines for international service--is the longest-ranged of this new breed of big trijet airliners. With nearly 6000 mile range (9660 kilometers), it is designed to serve 95 per cent of international air routes, operate from existing and planned satellite airports. The first L-1011 enters airline service in 1971. The latest--bigger wing, longer fuselage, more powerful engines, broader landing gear--can be flying for the airlines early in 1973.
