Synopsis

In 1939 Howard Hughes, the famous playboy, record breaking pilot, film producer and industrialist ordered a radical new design of four piston-engined aircraft from the Lockheed Aircraft Company for the use of his US airline Transcontinental & Western Air, later to become Trans World Airways. He requested that the planes could fly coast to coast of the USA non-stop. This revolutionary design, later to be known as the Constellation, could fly faster and at higher altitude than any comparable aircraft of its day. Eventually a total of 856 aircraft saw service with the world's airlines and military air arms.



This book is the first full-colour publication ever produced on the Constellation, illustrating 95% of the liveries carried by the aircraft in service, covering the prototype XC69, through L-049, L-649/749,

L-1049 Super Constellation to the L-1649 Starliner, in a unique format of two photos per page with a comprehensive caption outlining the history of each particular aircraft described. The publication also contains a useful index of airlines that operated the aircraft, throughout its service history.
