An L-1011 TriStar airliner destined for the scrap heap was refurbished instead and cleared for a one-time flight from Roswell, New Mexico, on 30 January 2010, to become the newest exhibit at the Airline History Museum in Kansas City, Missouri. The aircraft, built in 1972 and formerly owned by TWA, will become an educational exhibit. The landing marked the first time a TriStar had touched down at Wheeler Downtown Airport, the location of the museum. The museum’s other aircraft includes a Lockheed Constellation and a Martin 404.
