Lockheed Super Constellation

Australia’s Historical Aviation Restoration Society (HARS) probably gets the award for the messiest restoration effort. Their aircraft, ex-C-121C VH-EAG, had the distinction of being the last Constellation in storage at Davis Monthan AFB. The truth is that no scrap dealer wanted the airplane because the interior was covered with several inches of bird droppings. The Australians moved the aircraft across the road to the Pima Air and Space Museum and in April 1994, after eighteen months of work, flew her to Tucson International Airport for further restoration. Two years later on January 24, 1996 she departed Tucson on an epic journey to Sydney, Australia, where she arrived on February 3rd. The aircraft is an active participant on the Australian airshow circuit and is based in Sydney, Australia.
