Painting Connie CF-TGE

Bob Bogash of Seattle’s Museum of Flight updates the rebirth of the ex-TCA (Trans Canada Airlines) Constellation Super “G” that spent so many years rotting away near Pearson Airport outside Toronto.

I’ve posted a few times on the back and forth struggle that resulted in the airplane leaving Canada (that’s how Bob and I started our correspondance).  Managed to get some photos as she was being dismantled

Super Connie

She looks a lot more beautiful now.
