CS-TMR is also back

After a long wait and storage period at Amsterdam, LUZair's L-1011-500 with registration CS-TMR flew again and landed at Lisbon last 20th of July.

Soon, this aircraft will be ferried to California for a C-check.

TriStar500.net - the return!

As some of you might have noticed, TriStar500.net was put offline last Summer. Lack of motivation and spare time were the main reasons. Also, I was not willing to spend again such a large amount that I was paying for a hosting of 500MB with unlimited traffic. After some reflection I decided to end the story of this site which started in January 2000. However, some friends of mine were startled with such a decision and tried to help me bringing back TriStar500.net. So, a special thanks must be given to Jorge Diogo and Paulo Correia (AirSim) and to Miguel Blaufuks (simFlight) for providing a new and free hosting to the site.

But motivation was still lacking. And I didn't want to keep the same layout of the site because it was difficult to update. It was only in February of this year that I started working in a new layout and structure of the site. Also a decision was made about changing the site's language version from Portuguese to English.

After a long "C-check", TriStar500.net is now back with a very, very simple design and a light structure. Just like I wanted it to be. Off-topic sections from the old site were definitely removed and this site is now only about the L-1011 TriStar.

In this associated blog I will post news about TriStars, site's updates and new photos. So, if you are curious about TriStars, keep an eye on it.
