Another Lost Sign?
We have all heard the stories about the location of several Jumbo Jets. One is that the Jumbo Jet that was at Morey’s Pier was sold to a german broker and he then traded the Jumbo Jet for 2 rail cars of tomato ketchup. Final destination of MP’s Jumbo Jet? “Gorky Park” in Moscow! (Not Confirmed satellite images do not show a Jumbo Jet in Gorky Park) Cedar Point’s Jumbo Jet landed in Beoland and then move to Dreamland in Minsk Belarus missing it’s famous Jumbo Jet sign. CP’s Jumbo Jet made a stop in Sweden and as we reported back on 11/13/2009 with our blog post entitled “The lost sign?” that a WildCat or Galaxi style roller coaster was sporting a Jumbo Jet sign:Well here is the story of Coney Islands Jumbo Jet, it was sold to a traveling showman in China. I came across this picture of Coney Island’s Jumbo Jet Sign on thehundreds.com with a blog post entitled “Ground Zero” about half way down on the page. I would love to post the picture of this sign, however I cannot because of copyright issues. I have written the site and ask for permission to post on this very blog. So for now you’ll need to go to thehundreds.com to see a very cool shot of Coney Island’s Jumbo Jet sign. Seems that this would make the second Jumbo Jet with a missing Jumbo Jet sign. Lost coasters and lost signs, the search continues….. Let’s Ride!
