When Washington National Airport (now Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport) opened its new terminal in July 1997, it held an open house and invited the public to tour the new facility. Save-A-Connie (Airline History Museum) M404 N145S; Mid-Atlantic Air Museum M404 N450A; and Berlin Airlift Historical Foundation C-54E N500EJ were invited to attend and were open to the public for tours during the event. Sadly, all three aircraft will probably never fly again but they made for a great display during that July 1997 event

This aircraft was damaged beyond economical repair during an April 2020 tornado. C-54D N9015Q was acquired as a replacement aircraft and parts from N500EJ, including props and a horizontal stabilizer were used for the restoration of N9015Q, which has now been re-registered N500EJ. The interior is being transferred from this aircraft to N9015Q, which will be painted in a color scheme very similar to N500EJ.
