Default Re: Did anyone say "L-1011 Paint Cracks Eliminated"???

Just for update...

I got a response from Inflight, however, the contents was similar to the other two or three statements I got when I did report any kind of severe quality problems to them during the past two years. Therefore, I really don't know if there's any effect.

(...) Very many thanks for the email which you have sent to me which I have read with interest. This could not have come at a better time to be honest as I have a meeting this week with the factory about production.

As of today I have called a stop to ALL L1011 models until this is investigated FULLY. (...)

Actually, they have always been "very thankful" and, accidently, had "board meetings" the week I wrote them. Problems weren't solved anyway, though...
