ROTFLMAO!! This is a Lockheed 1049 that was never a USAF EC-121.

Are you sure of yourself ?

I would suggest that this C-121 has never flown a commercial passenger.

This particular Connie was a C-121C with the USAF serial no. 54-0157, construction no 4176. See history at https://hars.org.au/lockheed-c-121c-super-constellation/. The 'EC' description is probably one of those FA issues.

Google This: USN EC-121 Warning Star Barbers Point 1964 8x12 Photo.
Photo Description: A left side view 8x12 photo of a United States Navy Lockheed ( C-121 Constellation) EC-121P Warning Star aircraft SH-28 ( BuNo 143205 ) assigned to An Airborne Early Warning Barrier Squadron Pacific (AEWBARRONPAC) pictured taxiing at Naval Air Station (NAS) Barbers Point, Hawaii, on March 8, 1964. It was later converted to WC-121N before going into storage in 1971. In 1976 it was scrapped. Please be advised this photo is a bit soft.

Wholeheartedly agree, this is one of, if not the most beautiful aircraft to fly the skies.
