The L1011 remains one of the most remarkable and best aircraft ever built!
According to some yes, but.... it must be remembered that the Lockheed L1011 however superb in systems redundancy (certainly a fact, not disputed, nothing finer) it must be maintained properly, otherwise all is not good.
IF you have experienced ground engineers and knowledgeable pilots, it has no equal, with regard to superbly safe air transportation.
The devil is certainly in the details.

One has to actually fly the aeroplane for awhile to appreciate the careful thought that went into the design...a true gentlemens airplane.
