Yes, it's 57C. Sadly, I suspect that she's headed to the great scrapyard in the sky  Sad

I wonder - is that aircraft airworthy? The price seems a bit low!  Smile Then again, with the operating economics of a -990 these days, that might explain it. All the same, I think it would be great if one of those associations that saves historic aircraft would take it and restore it to operational condition, like the "Save-a-Connie" people did with that Constellation a few years back. Seeing a -990 in the skies these days would certainly be a first for many of us here.
May the wind be always at your back . . . except during takeoff & landing.
