Default Airplane with very interesting history.

I got this picture at my house when this plane was being test flown after it's restoration that was done at my local airport a few miles from me. Check out the story of it's history.

Sweet Electra; it has led a full life.
A sad note, to me, is most of the WW II bombers that were converted to equally sweet exec. aircraft, after the war, have now either rotted away or been converted back to quasi-military specs.
Some of those modified to exec. aircraft were very spiffy looking.

Beautiful, thanks for sharing. I'm not an airplane guy, but I wonder what those pilots think when the fly one for the first time after a restoration? Not for me, no thanks.

Amelia Earhart was flying one of those when she disappeared.
