On 23 September, Zurich airport will host a fundraiser for the Connie. This event is open to the public; all Super Constellation fans and enthusiasts are welcome, an SCFA membership is not required.

Aircraft access will be via the airport visitor terrace. Busses will shuttle people to spot "D01" where the Connie will be on display all day. Members of the board, crew, and shop will be on location, along with the Connie shop as well as an information stand. There, we will attempt to answer any questions that visitors may have.
The highlight of the event will be the arrival of the RedBull DC-6B from Salzburg at approximately 1100. The DC-6 will be parked on spot "D03" next to the Connie. Throughout the day, 3 sight seeing flights will depart on the DC-6; proceeds of the flights will go toward the "Fly Connie, fly" project.
