As a large portion of us will know, about the Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation which has turned out to be just about the wiped out types of today's skies which are been run by Boeings and Airbuses. The Super Constellation which can resemble no other traveler airplane which typifies the time of the 50s. At one time it was even been named as the "Ruler of the Atlantic" when considerably more number of Constellations crossed the enormous water between the North America and the Europe than some other air ship. In the late time it has ended up nostalgic that planes like the fanciful Douglas DC-3, the DC-4 and even the DC-6 have been returning on numerous European airplane terminals and the innumerable admirers, of both youthful and old, have been seen treasuring the revival of these enormous propliners.
Hey 583CT which is in the Dominican Republic was the main and the last airworthy Super Constellation which was been industrially enrolled. In any case, she was required with a few repairs and full frameworks check. A FAA affirmed engineer and the Constellation expert have administered the 2 months support in the Santo Domingo. Still in Santo Do mingo the essential printed material for her enrollment in the US register has been finished and the air ship got the new enlistment N105CF. On November 7, 2000 the Constellation was flown under the new enrollment to Opa Locka (Miami) in the USA.In Florida the support work proceeded. Amid the main days of January 2001 the Super Constellation has been flown in the very ship flight to Marana Northwest Regional Airport at Avra Valley, Arizona. Here the genuine rebuilding and readiness work for the ship flight to Basel is done. Rebuilding and support work began with the assistance of the MATS Connie group and the affiliation's volunteers. Regardless of the diligent work, N105CF did not get the Standard airworthiness endorsement which is very important to convey to the travelers. The choice has been taken to stop all the work on the Connie and to search for an option which will permit the Connie venture to proceed. In spring 2003, transactions with the proprietor of the "Camarillo Connie" occurred and an assention was found for a lease/buy of N73544 (one of the last 4 Connies as yet flying on the planet). Toward the end of April/start of May 2004 the ship flight occurred and we flew in 6 legs from, as well.
From that point forward we went to different airshows in and abroad to the pleasure of a huge number of individuals. As specified above we search for individuals, donators and supporters to proceed with our venture to the extent that this would be possible. In the meantime the Executive Committee of our Association will illuminate and welcome individuals and/or visitors to fly locally available our Connie for the occasions that we expect to take an interest)
