TriStar’s N910TE L-1011 Jumbo Jet Has Landed at KCI

TriStar’s N910TE L-1011 Jumbo Jet Has Landed at KCI

July 15, 2017


Let’s all extend a very warm and loud thank you to Delta Air Lines for all its done to help make this flight happen, returning N910TE to Kansas City and into service for kids STEM educational programs. Delta's commitment to TriStar and STEM education is inspiring and very much appreciated

TriStar History and Preservation Inc., d.b.a TriStar Experience, is a Kansas City, Missouri based 501c3 Not for Profit with operating locations at Kansas City’s Wheeler Downtown Airport and the former TWA Overhaul Base at Kansas City International Airport incorporating in January 2013. 

TriStar was created to save and preserve iconic jet aircraft while re-purposing them for use as STEM teaching tools and to help give back the “aha” moments that can inspire children and change their lives forever.
 
TriStar has worked with education professionals to update curriculum to adhere to not only KS/MO but also National STEM Standards.

TriStar’s N910TE L-1011 is a unique jumbo jet with walk up ground access best suiting the needs of TriStar for use as an educational platform. The lecture presentation area will be in the First Class section on most airplanes with a “learning lab” or immersive experience lab” in the Coach section. 

TriStar is the only known Not For Profit to use a jumbo jet as a setting for this educational experience. The L-1011 was acquired on December 31st 201 and registered to TriStar History and Preservation Inc. as N910TE.
 
N910TE began restoration and maintenance in January of 2016 and most of this work was completed by spring of 2017.The aircraft traveled from Tucson, where it has been held since 2001, to Kansas City and will be modified and readied for its new role in STEM education. TriStar has received a ferry permit from the Federal Aviation Administration and acquired the necessary fuel for its trip.
 
Since TriStar is a nonprofit organization, they rely on volunteers and donations to support their mission. 

For those interested in supporting the N910TE aircraft specifically, TriStar is offering seat plaques to commemorate those that provide a generous donation.  Whether folks are interested in the aircraft for its iconic design, everyone should be excited about the role to be played delivering STEM education.
