I may be climbing up fools mountain thinking that this question can even
be answered, but here goes.

After WW II the Constellation apparently went on a promo tour to show the
public this magnificent new airliner.  Sometime around 1950 (may be a bit
before or a bit after) a Connie came to Detroit (YIP) and the public was
invited to tour the aircraft.

Is there a Connie Specialist who might possibly know precisely which
Connie came to Detroit?  I do not recall any airline markings and I feel
it was just billed as << The Constellation >>.  I remember that souvenir
postcards were handed out too.

Clear skies to all,
