At the close of their commercial career, these gorgeous beasts served as backup A/C for the Lockheed Electra in the Boston to Newark Easter Shuttle. Night engine starts were the best with the exhausts expelling flames.
Some folks out at OKC have a TWA Super Connie pretty much restored. http://www.airlinehistorymuseum.com/
wonderful a/c– fond memories of riding airlines during the 50’s–
looked forward to airline flights then–far cry from using them now—
i haven’t been on the airlines in almost a year now-=i will not use them unless it’s a “must use” case–i have a new rule–if i can drive it in 14 hours i will drive
