It's a sight you typically don't see everyday - a plane heading down I-495.

A 1958 TWA Lockheed Constellation Airplane known as the "Connie" is making its way down to JFK Airport. 

It will become a cocktail lounge at the TWA Hotel, which is expected to open next spring.

The plane's more than 300-mile journey started in Maine and traveled through five states before its final stop at the airport terminal. 

This plane is one of only four of the model remaining in existence. 

The "Connie" set a record back in the 1950s for the fastest nonstop flight from Burbank to New York with famed aviationist Howard Hughes at the helm.
