Apologies if this has already been posted, and the fact that the article is nearly 2 months old, but still. Interesting!

Nearly 30 years ago, a Lockheed Constellation flew to its current location at a Helena college. If all goes as planned, the 1958 plane will do the same to its new home at an Oregon museum next year.

After mechanics restore the plane, it will be flown to Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in McMinnville, Ore., where it will be on display alongside the famed Spruce Goose, the wood-resin plane billionaire Howard Hughes developed for use in World War II but which never lifted off past its initial prototype.

It will be nice to see another airworthy Connie (even if it is one flight).

Looks like she's a former Military bird...an EC-121? Anyone know which C-121 variant she is?

Looks like a EC-121H surveillance aircraft, predecessor to the AWACS 707.
