Plane originally owned by Howard Hughes in 1947. It was being restored with original engines at Lewis U. in Lockport, IL and recently jumped a chock during runup. A Ford Bronco was totaled and the CV-240 was scrapped. The engines were salvaged and are installed on N152JR, another CV-240, flying cargo.
