Connie At Lelystad The 31st Of August!

Tue Aug 27, 2002 12:46 am

Finally!!! The L1049 Connie is coming to Lelystad and it's there to stay! After some years of restoration it's finally flying. It will arrive the 31st of August at Lelystad Airshow. A big thing for the Netherlands!

Cheers,

That's great news for everyone with an interest in aviation. The Connie is a famous part in the history of aviation, thanks to all the people involved in this project! Looking forward to see it flying in Europe in the near future, I guess, there will some shots uploaded pretty soon. Blackbird1
I'd rather be flying!

Let's hope it will finally leave Arizona on tuesday August 27. It has been ready for it's ferryflight long time ago but the permission for the flight took ages to get from the FAA.

Oh well. Iv'e seen the aircraft regulary since 1986 when it was at Ryan. I swa it arrive at Avra Valley, I've walked under it's wings and taken beautiful pictures from all angles. I just will miss the departure tomorrow. I hope the Dutch will love her as much as we have for all these years.

Godspeed.
