I visited the Musee de l'Air at Le Bourget this weekend and was very impressed by the collection, even if the Air France 747 parked outdoors is in desperate need of a wash. My question is about several aircraft I saw parked far across the tarmac, including Air France 707-328 F-BLCD, Constellation F-ZVMV, Caravelle F-RAFG, DC-7 F-ZBCA. These are all sitting about waiting to be restored for eventual display at the museum. Does anybody know if any progress is being made on these aircraft or even which is first in line for restoration?View Large View Medium
On the subject of civil airliner restorations, is there any news from any other major restoration projects? How is the Comet restoration going at Everett?
