I have a love for the airliners of the Golden Era; no, not the 707 or 747 but the Stratocruiser and Lockheed Constellation.
I realize that the Constellation was designed for TWA and indeed they had them in service, but nothing beats the combination of Clippers such as Clipper Golden Gate, Clipper Flying Cloud, Clipper Sovereign of the Skies (OK, bad example) and all the Connies to boot.
After all, they were (and, ideally, still would be) 'The Chosen Instrument'.
