In 1986 a group of dedicated Kansas City based aviation enthusiasts decided they were going to find, acquire, and restore to like new condition a Lockheed Super G Constellation, model L-1049G. By that time the "Connie", as it was affectionately called, had disappeared from the skies. After much detective work, they found a derelict Connie, registration number N6937C, in storage at Falcon Field in Mesa, Arizona. It was one of the last Constellations off Lockheed's assembly lines in 1958, and was built as a cargo plane for Slick Airways. It passed through many hands after being sold by Slick Airways, and had been parked at Falcon Field nine years earlier, much the worse for wear, after its life as a bug sprayer in Canada was over.
