Photo Comment

AMSA's "City of Miami" grumbles past on one of its many cargo flights into Miami. This was the second of two Connies on approach to runway 09L within 5 minutes, a wonderful experience! In 1992 this aircraft was damaged when a DC-4 ran into it at Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, and it was stored there. Eleven years later, in 2003, the Ramey AFB Historical Association started work to restore her for display at the Ramey AFB in MATS colours. Unfortunately the work was later halted, but this Connie was still there by early 2018.
