    I heard of them right after they went bankrupt. A number of their former employees appeared in a gentlemen's magazine.

    Sad of their demise, as well as a number of other airlines.

    I've got a TON of high quality vintage propliner photos. the people who took them must have had some good change, cos I think the cameras used were pretty expensive, given the amazing quality of the photos.

    Nice shot of an L-049 Connie at San Francisco

    Nice wing view of the 049 model Connie

    Not a vintage photo, but it's very special. This was taken in June of 2000 when the Airline History Museum's Super Connie made a special flight from Kansas City to New York in honor of the 75th anniversary of the founding of TWA

    Nice shot of the first customer to fly the constellation, Pan Am

    Northwest Boeing Stratocruiser at my home airport of Seattle-Tacoma!

    And of course, who can forget this!

    Howard Hughes' C-69 Connie on its record-breaking flight in 1944 (a record still unbroken, if I'm right)

    Pan Am Boeing 307 on a flight over Mt. Rainier. OMG I want a model of this plane SOOOOO bad!

    I knowwww, 2 of the most beautiful propliners to ever grace the skies. I look forward to AHM's Super Connie to take to the skies, once again! and Clay Lacy is working on converting an old C-97 to a B377 in United colors. he recently bought 2 C-97s, one to restore, and the other to use for parts.

    haaa, if I were the sole winner of the powerball jackpot, I'd purchase the Pima Air and Space Museum's C-69 Connie, have it restored to flying condition, and flown to Seattle where I'd have a special hangar built for it at KBFI! :D
