Robert Supina submitted this photo and note: “In November 1999, the Super Constellation from Kansas City was brought down to Houston Hobby Airport for the celebration of the grand opening of fundraising to restore the original 1940 Terminal/Tower Building. I obtained permission to park my 1937 Packard LeBaron All/Weather Town Car at the nose for pictures. ‘I’ll give you a ride in MINE if you’ll give me a ride in YOURS!’ I told the pilot. I let both pilots drive my car around their plane, and I got to fly back to Kansas City with them and get 15 minutes right seat time. For insurance purposes, I had to join the organization for $100. Then I had to pay $129 for a Southwest flight back to Houston. Money well spent!”
