Orbital ATK’s Stargazer Gets Rebranded

For anyone at the Mojave Air and Space Port who was wondering where Stargazer went, here’s your answer. It’s been off getting re-branded in the wake of the ATK and Orbital Sciences Corporation merger.

    I was, in fact, wondering. Thanks for the news!

    Engineers design and build things, while MBA’s ‘rebrand’.

  • James

    I have a theory that in the end the MBA’s and all the advertisers are all now endlessly just bouncing off each other and not necessarily the consumer so much as those who think just like the originator.

    This SpaceFlightNow article includes a picture of its old paint job.

    This must be one of the absolute last of the L-1011’s with a valid FAA air worthiness cirt. If Orbital/ATK wanted to make a few bucks they should offer walk on tours to aviation junkies like me to come out and tour it. Myself and a lot of other folks from another web site would give them enough paying heads to at least pay the parking fees probably more.

    The L1011 has indeed become a rare bird.

    The Sands in Las Vegas is suppose to have one they use to fly VIP high rollers in.

    I also saw something about one being on display at a museum in Palmdale. I am not sure if they are open for tours.

    I think there’s one on display in Kansas too. It’s on my list to visit when I go visit the Cosmosphere.

  • SpaceTech

    The Sands does indeed have an L1011 in storage but I don’t believe that it has flown for a few years.

    Makes sense as they have a couple B747SP I see when driving by the airport.

    This plane is at the San Bernardino Airport. It’s pretty awesome! There’s a small cul-de-sac that ends next to the runway/hangars. That’s where she sits, you basically drive up to the thing.
