Hello-
I was driving through Kansas City, Missouri a couple of weeks ago, & noticed The Airline Museum on the map of the town, & decided to pay it a visit.  They've got 3 airliners there: a Lockheed Constellation, a Martin 404, & the ever present Douglas DC-3, as well as other artifacts such as uniforms & other airline related items.  The 3 photos of the aircraft were shot with a film camera, hand held, 1/8 second, f/2.8.  We (my son & I) had a museum volunteer walk us around, & he seemed to know his stuff.  I had a good time.  It's just south of the Kansas City Downtown Airport, right on the state line of Missouri & Kansas.

That Constellation used to fly around to airshows giving rides. 
Unfortunately engine troubles have grounded it for the past several years. 
Any chance the guide mentioned if there were plans to get it back in the air anytime soon?

I think he said that they were working to put all 3 in the air, starting with the Conny.
