God love the Connie...sexy beast.
Ferdinand Porsche showing off the new car, he soon went to jail.
A few years ago we were in Geneva walking around the stores when I saw a model of a Connie in the window of a Breitling watch store. I took some photos and said to my wife I wonder if they would donate a model to the aviation museum.
So we went in through the glass doors to the next doors when the first set closed and we heard through a speaker "What do you want, in French.". After I explained our visit they opened the inner doors where the manager was so irate, gave me all kinds of anguish, in French. Apparently it is against the law to take photos through the window of a watch store. hmmm
After I apologized, I gave them my business card for the museum with my request and they did send me a nice letter a month later saying vary nicely no.
No time today but I will post the photo I took here.
