Ramey Air Force Base Historical Association President, Chris Talkington posted the following in “Save The Connie”
RAFBH’s Board made the big move, approving up to $5,000 toward static restoration of Ramey’s well-known ”Connie.” The motion is contingent on receiving full title, long-term lease or title to permanent display area for it and other aircraft, no liens on the bird and donations of $50,000 to restore the legendary bird. The full business plan is being formulated, and will require substantial volunteer work, contract with experienced restoration ”pros,” and partnerships with Aguadilla and Puerto Rican politicians and associations, business and civic groups. We believe this will energize our association/Museum and return Borinquen Field to its former glory days! Stay tuned….
