If you've never been to the National Airline History Museum, this weekend is the time.

They're having a big event this weekend.
Saturday, September 14th from 10  a.m until 2 p.m. is the Celebration of Flight.
Proceeds will benefit the museum`s Flight of the Connie campaign to restore its historic Lockheed Constellation, one of only three aircraft of its kind still in flying condition.

The "Connie" played a huge part in Kansas City's aviation history.  Kansas City was the home of Trans World Airlines or TWA.  Organizers want to restore the Connie to get her flying again.  The goal is for the Connie to recreate her 1944 flight which she took from Burbank, Calif. to Washington, D.C.

The restoration project is expected to take three months.
