Connie Props: Which Way?

Fri Feb 25, 2000 8:48 am

I just got a copy of Terry Morgan's book on the Constellation, and on page 23 I find a pic of what seems to be the No 4 engine of an unidentified Connie. But the prop shown would turn clockwise, as viewed from in front of the aircraft, and every other Connie picture I've seen shows counter-clockwise props (if it shows anything). Do some Connie props turn clockwise, or did they print the pic backwards?
