What happened to the CV880 (or maybe 990) that Fox-TV was going to crash into the desert a few months ago. The show was cancelled due to bad publicity and the not-so-good idea status of crashing an airliner for ratings so the apparantly flyable CV880 must still be around. I had heard before the show was to have aired that the aircraft was a CV-880 (on national news) but you never can trust the aviation savey of the general public, much less the national media who wouldnt know the difference between a CV880/707/DC8/CV990.
Is the NASA "Galileo-1" CV990 still around somwhere? I saw it years ago here in Fairbanks, Alaska, long after other 990s had been retired.

search earlier 990 threads. It seems this project was suspended, for the FAA would
not allow it and it would have been an ecological disaster. The Galileo 990 is,
I think, stored in the Mojave desert.
