Ladies and gentlemen, behold today’s aviation photo. Has there ever been an airplane quite so striking as the Lockheed Constellation?
Nope. The Connie is one of a kind. I would argue that she is one of the most well-styled aircraft in aviation history. This particular constellation was photographed by Mr. David Foxx, at the Warbirds Downunder show at Temora Aviation Museum, New South Wales, Australia.
Per Mr. Foxx: ” ‘Connie’ is VH-EAG, Lockheed C121-C (cn 4176), built for the USAF in 1955 and serving as 54-0157 until June 1977. She now flies as a Super Constellation with the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS) in Australia. “
Special thanks to David Foxx for today’s photograph. Mr. Foxx is a professional writer, amateur pilot, enthusiastic photographer and absolute aviation lover from Adelaide, South Australia. He is the mind behind Airscape Magazine. Thanks, David!
