Actually located in the yard of the Proud Bird, an aviation-themed restaurant close to runway 26L. The aircraft was in a very much better state when it was first displayed there circa 2007 and it's disappointing to now see it like this. Originally 42-15552 with the US Army. With Pennsylvania Central Airlines Apr 45 to Apr 48 as NC19915. With Capital Airlines from Apr 48 to Jun 61 and then a short time with United Air Lines. After that it operated by a number of corporations and also private owners. It never flew for Western Air Lines.
