  • Description

    The first of a fleet of four L-1011 Tristar jetliners for Saudi Arabian Airlines -- Saudi -- is in the final stages of production at Lockheed's headquarters in the Californian desert.

    The four new jets will be powered by the latest Rolls Royce jet engines, giving them greater flexibility in operating from high-altitude and high temperature airports.

    The first Saudi L-1011 will roll out of the final assembly hanger in April. After final test flights by both Lockheed and Saudi pilots, the new jet should be delivered in June.

    Saudi expect delivery of the second new Tristar in July.
