Our senior club member Ron has been building this Connie https://www.facebook.com/PhillyFliersCL/photos/pcb.2448429491893837/2448429121893874/?type=3&theater for a few weeks now. Seeing today it has snowed, I'm off to the Skunk works to see my friend Dan. Were going to make the spun aluminum cowlings for the Connie. Powered by 4 FP .25's, I can't wait to see it in action. Wingspan is 74" and it's going to sound amazing. My buddy Dennis built the B-36 of this series but unfortunately had to leave it in Korea. Dan has the C-124 Globemaster complete and in silver dope currently awaiting the white top coat. Big plans for the Philly Fliers and myself this season. I made some recent comments at one of our club meetings in regards to building. While the ARF's seemed to bait and hook many of the members, they literally destroyed the building momentum our club once had.

Looks like a neat model. I was lucky enough to fly in and skydive out of the Save A Connie Foundations bird at the World Freefall Convention in Quincy Illinois back in '96. After take off they let us walk around the airplane and even go up to the flight deck and watch the 3 man crew. Nothing like 4 rumbling radials taking you to altitude. Noisy but worth it.

How cool was that !!!!??????!!!!!!

That's GOT to be a pretty rare privilege! I nearly had a seizure just watching one pass over my hill (probably on its way home) several years ago.

I visited the US Air Force Museum in Ohio a few years ago. The Columbine III Super Connie is on display there. It's a remarkable airplane.
