Super Constellation
The Lockheed Super Constellation was one if not the most elegant airliner.

It's triple fin tail assembly and the tapered fuselage gave it it's caracteristic silhouette.

In the forefront, detail of a Air Canada Vickers Viscount.
Sept 1968, Dorval

Pictures shown here lack in quality what they reminisce, the're the witness, thirthy years later, of the privilege I had seeing this plane in regular service and of the pleasure I experienced seeing it fly. No wonder enthousiasts are still trying to keep a Connie operational.

The picture on the left shows a Super Constellation equipped with wing-tip reservoirs (a L-1049H) giving the plane significantly longer range. Behind, the tail of an Ilyushin Il-62, a plane resembling the Vickers Super VC-10.

The picture on the right shows a World Samplers Travel Club Constellation going to the tarmac.

Constellation C-121A or VC-121A In spite of poor quality pictures the plane shown below during multiple landing is probably an ex-military Constellation C-121A or VC-121A (due to the number and position of windows). (According to a picture in PACE, S., Lockheed's Constellation, Enthousiast Color Series, Motorbooks International, 1998, page 58)
