Beautiful prop liner !

A visitor from - posted Tue November 11, 2014:
Amongst the safest planes ever built. The mere sight of this picture brings back to me kid nostalgia. I used to spend hours by the runway seeing these planes land and take off at an airbase in India in the 70's. Sat so many times in it and my dad was a maintenance specialist on this plane. These belonged to Indian Navy and were leased out to the Air Force. The sound and sight of this plane was enough to drive me wild..

Fantastic airplane and fantastic photo

A visitor from - posted Tue July 2, 2013:
Super clear image, great detail: frozen rotating props, strobe lights illuminated against a sky blue backround. An iconic design in flight.

Super Connie!!!!

A visitor from France posted Sun October 14, 2012:
What a beauty ! I just came across this magnificent picture ! Excellent job Mr Callaert for your photo and congratulations to all those who designed, built, maintained and later fortunately restored this fantastic airplane.

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 5, 2012:
A friend of mine was in paris during the late 50's studying art when his teacher took the whole class out to ORLY to look at and photograph the connies there, as an example of industrial perfection

A visitor from - posted Thu August 30, 2012:
This shot captured the stunning beauty of the aircraft-with even the propellers being frozen in motion-makes me wish i wee onboard.

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 21, 2012:
Brings back good memories. The Connie is still my favorite airplane.

A visitor from - posted Tue August 14, 2012:
What memories. I worked on the first two airframes at Lockheed from 1940 to 1942 in department 24 in Burbank,Ca. I missed it's maiden flight because I was in boot camp in San Diego, Ca. Just looking at the blue prints, I knew it was a winner

A visitor from - posted Sat July 14, 2012:
The lines in this airplane design are amazing. It's a masterpiece. Wish I could fly in this beauty someday, or even see one take off. This picture shot is beautiful.

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 20, 2012:
Elegant shot of arguably the most graceful propeller airliner.

A visitor from - posted Thu June 14, 2012:
OMG!! First I was afraid this was one of those computer generated images of the airplane...but it is NOT! Been looking for this kind of picture of Connies...

A visitor from Korea, Republic Of posted Fri June 1, 2012:
What a pic, thanks a lot for this great shot!

A visitor from Mauritius posted Wed May 30, 2012:
The curve of the fuselage reminds me of the Jag E Type ! The most beautiful car yet produced ! Sentimentally though, it was the first aircraft I travelled overseas in in 1966 from South Africa to Luxemburg

A visitor from United States posted Wed May 16, 2012:
Thats my fav plane.....in puerto rico they have one and still working every day..

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun May 13, 2012:
Good to see a Connie in such fine fettle. Does a great job for Breitling. Those gleaming nacelles! Cloudless sky - glorious opportunity grasped by a highly proficient photographer who deserves our
heartfelt appreciation.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun April 8, 2012:
Nice "action" shot of an unusual aircraft.

A visitor from - posted Wed March 21, 2012:
When I was a young boy in the late 1950s, my parents took my newly married aunt & uncle to the airport where they boarded a TWA Connie to begin thier honeymoon. My dad simply remarked "Wow! A Constellation!" In those glory days, airline travel was a big deal...flying in a Constellation was the ultimate in class and luxury.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat March 10, 2012:
They used to fly over my house in Melbourne , Australia every day when I was kid. They're wonderful.

A visitor from Mauritius posted Wed March 7, 2012:
The constellation is one of my favorite fusolages ,this photo is very clear and also quite close,showing how aironautic and neat this plane was.The photo is showing how cleane and shining is the engines i bet they are in good condition

A visitor from - posted Fri March 2, 2012:
What a brilliant old machine and a superb photo. Thankyou.

A visitor from United States posted Mon February 27, 2012:
Photo captures the grace of this grand old airliner climbing up where she belongs.

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 12, 2012:
You tell me, a 777 or a constellation...The 777 is a aircraft this is a airplane! Love the photo and I can hear now....

Beautiful airplane and, so good to see it flying.

A visitor from - posted Wed January 25, 2012:
Any Constellation pic is a good pic. But this one of the recently repainted Swiss L-1049 is by far the nicest one I have seen yet. You can just hear and feel those R3350s

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 23, 2012:
Wow!!! I am not kidding; this is the BEST shot I have ever seen on airlinrs.net. A very great shot!

A visitor from Belgium posted Fri January 6, 2012:

This is absolutely the most beautiful aircraft ever designed. Great to see this one is still in the air!

A nice shot of one of the most beautiful aircraft ever.

A visitor from - posted Wed November 16, 2011:
Nice light good angle. Curious as to when this was taken. Slightly slower shutter would have given more prop spin. One of my favorite aircraft for airliners. Fond memories of watching them land as a young boy.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon November 7, 2011:
Nice photo

A visitor from France posted Thu November 3, 2011:
I flew this plane from Saigon to Paris (with some stops of couse) when I was very young. Great memories. Worst souvenir is leaving the mountains to fly over Damas plain.... Lost hundreds of feet and passengers lost their breakfast too....
This plane was a dream ! Few passengers and crew was the nicest people one can think of. Longing for these happy days which will never return.
