The Lockheed Constellation


I got a chance to check out an abandoned Lockheed Constellation today in Aquidilla, Puerto Rico. Even though the airplane was in poor shape it still maintained the eloquent lines that have helped make it one of the most celebrated airliners to ever fly the skies.

Very Cool! Since we’re doing aviation pictures, I got to checkout this Ford Tri-motor in CLE 3 weeks ago. It’s being restored by my friend Paul and a few of his buds. He’s actually in the process of writing a new POH for it.


That is really interesting. Did you get to go inside it at all?


Here you go! What’s really cool is Paul is one of only 25 (give or take) pilots in the world with a Ford TriMotor type!


So cool. Now if I could just figure out what the spray bottle is for.


This one is for Chris. A friend posted this pic of them putting the final touches on the TWA hotel in JFK which includes a Connie shell.
