I saw this airplane at the Airline History Museum in Kansas City in 2010. It had been awaiting an engine overhaul for several years at the time. The museum is/was supported by a large number of former TWA employees who volunteered many hours to maintain and fly this aircraft as well as a Martin 404 and a Douglas DC3. Lockheed built a large number of Constellations for the Air Force and the Navy. The Navy tried to modify the Constellation substituting large turboprop motors for the PW R3350s, but severe vibration problems could not be overcome.

I dream of the day I will be able to attend an air show and maybe be lucky enough to see and ear the sound of a L - 1049 flying. Love the old sky birds. Brazil on line.

First acrft type I ever flew on, KSFO, PHNL, PWAK,ROAH, a TWA Connie much like this one. What an adventure for a young boy.

We used to take my Grandmother to Midway in Chicago where she'd walk out on the tarmac and climb stairs to board one of these beauties.

What in the world is the speed of the camera used to take this photo? Those propellers appear motionless.

Just a ton of great memories of the Connie and TWA when it was headquartered in Kansas City. Thanks so much for posting and sharing such a great picture.

An outstandig example of the most beautiful passenger aircraft ever! My first flights were on EAL Connies, RT from Washington DC to Charlotte, NC when I was about 12 years old. (That was about 1957 or so). traveled solo to visit my Aunt and Uncle and cousins in Charlotte, but the flights were the highlight of the vacation.
