It would be a shame to see one of these beautiful planes scrapped. I can't imagine there are many left -- for some reason, I want to say there are four CV
-990's remaining (including that beautifully restored one in Switzerland), and have no idea how many 880's are left.
Do you have any idea if that solicitation for donations was recently posted? I'd gladly send a few bucks their way, but I just want to make sure the project is still active and the plane hasn't already been scrapped -- it doesn't look like there's been much activity on the website lately.
If they're still at it, though, this strikes me as a very worthy cause and certainly worth a donation.
