These aircraft, msn 293A-1249, and msn 193G-1250 are both Lockheed L-1011-500 Tristar models, they used to belong to the Saudi Royal Family and have very low flying hours, only 1249 saw airline time for a little while.

Last year they were bought by Sheldon Adelson of the Las Vegas Sands Casino, they are currently in Ardmore going through modifications to make them flying casinos. I wouldn't mind catching a ride in any of these machines, but seeing them turned into flying brothels for asian high rollers just makes me sad.

(Not that the Saudis made better use of them)

As in Ardmore, Oklahoma? I'm near there (2hrs drive). I'd love to take some pics and post them here.

I was told that the interior is being done by King Aerospace in Ardmore Industrial Airpark, Ardmore Municipal Airport, Oklahoma.

Seems like they finished work on the first one, and are beginning the other one
