It's awesome to know one of these great beasts is being restored to flying condition. Too bad it isn't one of the original pax-configured 377 Strats. I have heard that no pax Strats are in existance any more.

Nice to hear. I always liked this somewhat strange-looking aircraft.
One question about the C-97 soon flying again: is it a Stratocuiser or Stratofreighter? Whats the history of that particular plane?
BTW, I´ve excellent 3-side illustrations of a lot of different Strats. Drawings, so I cannot show it on the airliners.net archive.
I wanted to do so, but got no answer by the administrator so far since 3 weeks. Maybe he´s on vacation.
