There are two Connies based at Camarillo (near Oxnard) that I
know of, a blue and white 1049 (actually a former USAF C-121C)
and an EC-121T in USAF markings.  Both are active on the airshow
circuit; indeed, I've been aboard both of them.

An Alta Vista search reveals that the C-121C is owned by the
Constellation Historical Society, and the EC-121T by the
Gloabl Aeronautical Foundation.  The latter is described at as "A historical
flying museum."

There's also an outfit known as Airliners Of America that
operates a Martin 404.  (Anybody seen that new book about
the Martin 202 and 404?)

Here are the addresses and telephone mumbers of all three

	Constellation Historical Society
