The Airline History Museum in Kansas City, Mo. has acquired a 300-passenger Lockheed L-1011, a plane it says will soon be the last of its kind.
The former TWA aircraft, valued at $1.5 million, will likely be the only one remaining after 2012, museum officials say.
The museum hopes to bring the plane to Kansas City in April. But it first needs to raise $40,000 for its delivery from Roswell, N.M.
The museum hopes to use the plane as an educational exhibit.
Donations will go to the preparation of an eductional exhibit.
The Airline History Museum is in north Kansas City at Wheeler Downtown Airport.
