Updates on the Super Constellation move

Uncategorized

Robert Bogash, dedicated volunteer of the Museum of Flight in Seattle has been a driving force in the transfer of the Super Constellation 1049G from Toronto to the West Coast.  Bob and I have exchanged emails off and on for over a year and he’s been sending me updates on the progress of the Connie.

A detailed assessment of the condition of the airframe has taken place in Rome New York.  Pictures of the process are available here. Also of interest are details of the move.

The battle for ownership got very heated in the final stages and, as a volunteer at the Toronto Aerospace Museum, I felt some personal involvement in the whole process.    However, now that the Connie is on her way to restoration and display, I really wish Bob and the Museum Of Flight good luck and success.
