Lockheed Constellation at Fantasy of Flight

The Lockheed Constellation located at the Fantasy of Flight Museum has been sold to Kermit Weeks. The Constellation sale is reported here and confirmed on the FAA Database. This aircraft was airworthy for a ferry flight from Sanford to Polk County back in 2001. Having seen this aircraft, I don’t think it will be airworthy in the future.
