Re: Connie Accidents

The Dec 18,1949 accident was one block from my house. Remember walking over as a young child and thinking how massive this thing was.

CHANUTE AFM

Chanute Museum will be closing at the end of the year. Reason given is that Rantoul,Il can no longer pick up their Utility costs. I'll be going down there soon for one last look and to offer my services in flying the 51 to a new Museum.
