Conroy CL44-0! Will She Ever Fly Again?

Mon Oct 01, 2007 7:04 am

Conway Cl-44-O Guppy (Cn16)
The only ever guppied cl-44
I seen this aircraft many years ago. Fling for heavylift
I always considered cl-44 one of the most beautiful aircraft ever.
The Cl-44-0 was a great modification.
They (two) used to fly into Dub daily in the 80's (Aer Turas) Aer Lingus Cargo.
Cl-44-0 was stored in boumemouth for years & I believe was due to fly again with a company in the
Philippines.
Will any CL-44 fly again (even the 44-0)?
Could they fly again (parts & economics)?

Minor correction -- it was Conroy Aviation (not Conway) that did the CL-44 "Guppy" conversion. I believe only one was converted. If not mistaken they planned to convert another but the intended aircraft was written off in an accident before any work was done.
