Instructional airframes at the Helena Vocational Technical Center, with T-39A 61-0677 parked in front. This EC-121T is ex USAF 52-3417 but this serial is no longer carried, despite it still carrying its USAF livery. In May 2009 it was acquired by the Evergreen Aviation Museum, with plans to move it to McMinnville, OR. However, restoration work on the aircraft was halted when Evergreen declared bankruptcy in Dec 2013. The Connie was transferred to the Castle Air Museum in Jan 2014, but the current status of the project is unclear. Note the "Helena VO-Tech" titles on the radome.
