Finally after some years of setbacks our Connie has 4 running engines again. The number 3 is the ex Mats Connie engine which was given to the Aviodrome by Korean Air and KLM took care of the transportation for which both deserve our gratitude. Hopefully this awesome machine will take part in next years air show season.
