Hi all, I noticed this site while searching for Constellation pics. I've been working with the Lufthansa Technik guys in Auburn, Maine on "Project Superstar" ever since we rolled her into the new hangar (built just for her). I'm one of a handfull of structures mechanics working to restore this iconic super-connie back to its former glory.
I've been an aircraft mechanic all my life (about 35 yrs) and this job is by far the most interesting.
