Connie in JFK


Recommended Posts

It wasn't that long ago (well at least it doesn't seem so) that the Constellation Hotel (now torn down) on Dixon Road had its own Constellation aircraft on the property, used first as a bar and later moved and converted to a restaurant.

This Dixon Road Bar was actually TCA’s first Connie CF-TGE. Completely cleaned up and repainted in Rome, NY then transported in sections by truck to Seattle’s Museum of Flight. It was supposed to be housed out of the rain underneath MoF’s new plane park but at the same time as its arrival Boeing donated a test model 787. The newer plastic plane now resides safe and sound under the roof and the Connie greets museum visitors out in the Seattle rain.

A 1960’s crew change in Prestwick. Nordair operated four of them on northern sked flights as well as trans Atlantic charters. These particular aircraft were originally owed by National Airlines of Miami.
