Looks like Grace McGuire's 10E will be going to Atchison, KS.  It's not clear from the article how it's going to get there. Is it airworthy or will it be trucked?

By truck.

The Facebook page mentioned in the article has pictures and video of the plane being disassembled, loaded onto tractor trailers and hitting the road to Kansas.

For those who have FB accounts, here's the link ...

I think Atchison is a good place for the airplane, as long as they get it under cover until the museum is built. Nothing good happens to an airplane left parked outdoors.
I don't know how a good a replica cn1042 is but it will be good to finally have it accessible to researchers.  It's the only genuine surviving 10E (cn1015 in Seattle is a converted 10A).

A chance to look at genuine 10E components in person is good news.

Yes and no. Grace McGuire has been rebuilding this beast since she bought it back in the 1970s after it had nearly burned up in a Florida hangar fire.
