This huge propeller greets visitors as they enter the NAM. Any idea what type does this belong to?

Pity couldn't visit the museum on my last trip...

Btw is the dummy "injured" model still there in the Super Constellation or has it been removed?

It is actually an ex-AI Super Constellation. It is so good to see that at least one of these iconic planes has been preserved.
