Is preparing for departure in legendary hangar Nine - now owned by the Airline History Museum at Kansas City. Today, this beautifully restored Super Constellation will depart for the Great Texas Balloon Race 2001 in Longview - Greg County Airport, Texas. Since the preflight check found that there was something wrong with the PRT (Power Recovery Turbine) in No. 4 engine, we could finally fixed it for four hours. This photograph was taken by the Canon EF 15mm Fish-eye lens showing us a unique perspective.
