Airways Magazine - TWA's TriStars

Airways' issue nÂș 225 (November 2014) has an interesting article about TWA's L-1011 written by Jon Proctor.

Jon Proctor was a TWA's DCS (Director of Customer Services) and had a long experience with the L-1011.

Some nice details like the record transatlantic cargo load carried by a L-1011-50 on a flight between Lisbon and New York and the fact that a TWA's RB211 engine completed 20,000 hours from service entry until it was removed from its wing are well explained in this article.
