heavyhauler Posted September 29, 2009 Share Posted September 29, 2009 Here is the link. It's an interesting story BUT, I know, I know, you won't be pleased with the lead V#$@vo truck. Shall we meet in Lititz?Regards, JohnGo to this website: http://www.rbogash.com/Connie/connie-RME-SEA.html and see all the neat photos and great write up of this old Super G Constellation CF-TGE (Called the Connie for short) Aircraft that was taken apart in Rome, New York for the long road trip in sections in August 2009, to Seattle, where it is now almost completely reassembled and placed right next to WWII Boeing B-17 and B-29 that are undergoing complete restoration for the Boeing Museum of Flight. Great photos of how this aircraft was moved across our highways from New York to Seattle , including it's arrival at Boeing (notice the good Seattle Sunny Weather). All three of the above plains are located in the old 2-44 Boeing Plant II Hangar on the West Side of Boeing Field, adjacent on the South side of the old Boeing Corporate Headquarters. This is the same place that all the B-17s were assembled during WWII, as were a lot of the different types of the old Minuteman Missile Ground Support Equipment that ended up in the various missile silos in Montana/Wyoming?Missouri/North and South Dakota. This Super-Constellation is a former Trans-Canada Airlines aircraft that had been used in the past as a TCA, which means it has been used to transport Military and other Govt parts and supplies to whereever they are needed to support various govt programs. It is a very large and long aircraft that is quite high off the ground. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
