Traffic alert: Plane to travel down I-95 at 15 miles per hour

AUBURN, Maine -- A vintage commercial airplane is set to undertake a long, slow journey from Maine to New York to be turned into a cocktail lounge.

The 1956 Lockheed Constellation, affectionately known as the ``Connie,'' is headed from Auburn-Lewiston Airport in Maine to JFK in New York.

A send-off event happened Monday. Then the plane departs Tuesday.

Once in New York, it will serve as the cocktail lounge outside TWA Hotel, a hotel that promises to bring back ``the magic of the Jet Age.''

A spokeswoman for TWA Hotel says the plane does not fly anymore. It's being towed on a flatbed truck. The journey will take several days because it'll be traveling at about 15 miles per hour.
