Former TWA jet. Checkout the red "L-1011" on the #2 engine duct which was part of the TWA livery for this old, but great tri-jet.

No, never with TWA.

Steve, you are correct. It is being repainted in TWA colors and I bit on the #2 engine duct paint.

She wasn't a TWA craft but I bet she has great stories from being at Pacfic Southwest, Aero Peru, Worldways Canada, The Flying Hospital and finally Tristar Experience.

They were maintenance pigs but a damn nice ride! One could come in for the night perfectly clean and by first flight in the morning have five write ups during pre-flight checks.
Sometimes, I dreaded the possibility of being assigned a "Tri-Pig" to work on but today I look back fondly upon them.

Funny how time does that.

The people of Safford AZ would be mighty surprised to find out they are now in New Mexico. I wonder why the author thought the airplane was over New Mexico. Oh well, typical of shoddy aviation reporting.
