17171 (cn 43309) I don't have the full story of this aircraft, but it has been sitting there since it ran out of fuel and made an emergency landing sometime around 1973. It doesn't seem to have sustained much damage (except for the nose and underside maybe). Usuable items (engines, wings, etc.) were salvaged. [Canon EOS D30 + Canon EF 28-80, 1/750]
