If this is the one that I took a tour through two or three years ago at the Oakland Airport, parked adjacent to a small building with a lot of memorabilia in it and a guy trying to raise funds to put it back in service, then the last time I was up there, maybe a year ago, it had been moved across the street, off the flight line and into the yard of a funky little amateur aviation museum they have up there, and sadly appeard to be in pretty ratty shape and no longer cared for.
