Great Catch, Sam! Is that Tom Woods F8F?

Written on 09/22/2017 by William Baldwin

Thought It was the new Air Force " 1 " but then it's not because it doesn't have the shinney bottom

The old but reliable GOONY BIRD It seems to never want to go away. Every airplane should be made as tough as the DC-3

I wonder why American airline's are changing to the foreign Manufactored plane's instead of buying from America. If I owned an airline I would have nothing but American made planes, mostly BOEING.

My first seat with Eastern was the right one/co-pilot seat in 1966. N6237G is in my logbook and will never forget what a ride she was! Looked a lot better than she flew - with boost off she was a two pilot airplane. At EAL the G model had an autopilot, but we never used it and the radar came folding up and out of the floor! Ah, the days were full of adventure, just getting her started.

I took my first flight on the Connie. It was TWA PIT to PHL. I love this plane.

N6237G Lockheed L-1049G Constellation (4662) just purchased by California Airmotive ex Eastern, not quite in the boneyard at Fox Field, Lancaster, California - 12 September 1968. Broken up in 1971. Most of the others in the yard were scrapped in 1970 I believe. Eastern called it an L-1049 Super G.

Beautiful aircraft - the Constellation is my #1 best-looking propeller aircraft

Didn't an old Kids show from the 50's feature a Seabee? I remember the show as being a cross between Ramar of the Jungle and Sky King.

Thanks, I took several when they arrived. They have been sent to them.

I crewed this aircraft in 1967/68 out of LGA and EWR for Easter Air Lines as Flight Engineer. "L1049 Super G"

Nice pic - and with an iPhone!

I assume those are not the original engines...?

Story behind the story of Gary.
This aircraft looks similar to the one piloted by Gary Powers in 1960 that was shot down over the Soviet Union. CIA pilot Gary Powers' U-2 spy plane was shot down while flying an espionage mission in Soviet Union airspace sparking open conflict between the USSR.
While flying at its extreme operating altitude it avoided several attempts of interception by MiG-19 and Su-9 fighters to reach it. The Russians fired a missile salvo of which one destroyed one of their own Soviet MiG-19 fighters, killing the pilot. When one missile hit the U-2 Powers bailed out but was captured soon after landing. Although Powers was sentenced for 10 years imprisonment he was released after two years during a prisoner exchange for a Soviet officer.
At this time, in the middle of the Cold war years, Soviet and American relations worsened considerably.

Nice shot of the ultimate PA23-250 Aztec F model. A big load carrier and a very stable a/c.

It appears similar to the Lockheed Super Constellation that was involved in a Mid-air collision with a Douglas DC-7 over the Grand Canyon in 1956. It was the first commercial airline crash to result in more than 100 deaths.

A great photo of the largest military transport aircraft in the world. Sadly production was stopped in 2014 due to the on-going political tensions between Russia and Ukraine where the aircraft were built.

Not exactly. It might be based on a B747-200 airframe, but it's actually a Boeing E-4 Advanced Airborne Command Post. One of only 4 currently in service with the USAF, although two are currently out of service due to damage suffered as a result of a tornado that struck Offutt AFB in June.
