This is the view of the aircraft preserved outside at the TWA Museum. TWA used JetStars as pilot trainers so it is nice that the TWA Museum has added this example (although it never actually flew for the airline) to its collection at MKC.
This Mad Dog was originally delivered in October 1987 to Spantax (Guiness Peat, hence the subsequent use of its Irish reg.) as EC-EFJ (EC-102) and then to LAC (as EI-BWD) and BWIA (9Y-THT) before joining TWA and becoming the special 'Wings of Pride' logojet. Its last revenue flight for American was during Feb. 2014 before being banished to Roswell, so it's really great that the TWA Museum has saved this piece of airline history from the axeman.
A flying visit to MKC meant, unfortunately, that I had no time to enter properly the Airline HIstory Museum but it was still nice to see thise beautifully restored Classic just from the outside. Note N948TW in the background at the TWA Museum.
Ex KLM Connie, beautifully preserved at the Wroughton Science Museum facility. Delivered to KLM in 1947, as PH-TET "Tilburg", later PH-LDT, and withdrawn from use Sep 1960. It was converted to freighter in 1962, then briefly carried TI-1045P in 1964 before becoming N7777G that same year. As such it saw service with many operators until impounded at Dublin in 1974, where it would remain for many years. Sold to Aces High in 1982 and registered as G-CONI, but reg never applied. The Science Museum acquired the aircraft and transported it from Dublin to Wroughton in July 1983. Restoration completed in Sep 1984 in TWA colours, even though it never flew for TWA.
