WHAT A WASTE OFF A GREAT AIRCRAFT THE MAGIC CONNIE

Looks like it had remnants of the old Eastern Airline livery..... Farewell to a lovely lady...

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.

Beautiful shot of what must one of the most beautiful aircraft ever.

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

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

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.

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

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.

Thank you Howard Hughes for the beautiful Connie.

Is that a United 440 in the background?
Keystone Ops
Pretty sure the United tail is a Vickers Viscount. Horizontal stab is angled, flat on a Convair products.

United Viscount indeed, three were present that day, N7413; N7422 and N7434.
