Our 1958 Connie airplane — which served as an Alaskan bush plane shuttling supplies to Prudhoe Bay and a marijuana dropper after retiring from TWA! — seats 75 guests. Connie serves cocktails and light snacks. Try the Vodka is My Co-Pilot, Connie's take on a martini.

 Connie's cockpit
Connie's cockpit has authentic controls.

Fully restored, the plane features murals by artist Mario Zamparelli that once graced the cabin, an original navigation system and the emergency device people used to escape danger: a rope! The cockpit even has a feed to air traffic control.
