tmb alan evans armstrong siddeley

Alan Evans, in South Africa, sends us this photo.

How to maintain a healthy level of insanity in retirement. Myself and a couple of friends off to the pub in my 1926 Armstrong Siddeley “Mendip” for a sundowner.

tmb super connieTony Walsh has sent us this information about the Museum of Flight– Boeing Field – Seattle is now building a massive covered aviation pavilion to protect “more than 20” of the large airliners & military aircraft currently uncovered.

In the preliminary list of planes to be moved to the $31 million pavilion in the article below, it does not include the one-time TCA-operated and TCA–schemed-after-restoration Super-Connie, but I suspect (in fact, I'm fairly certain) that she will be included. The trans-con trucking effort and costs after the restoration in NY state, and the beauty of this unique classic airliner, certainly warrants this weather protection. I also attached larger set of photos of this Super Connies post-restoration disassembly and trucking across the continent to Seattle.
