Very nice! Love the contrast of the Connie against the dark sky. Fantastic! Really shows off the beautiful lines of this old classic.

This photo brings back tremendous memories of the second flight I ever was on in my life and the first I remember: Real Aerovias Super Constellation L1049 from Sao Paulo Cumbica to Chicago, July 1958. I clearly remember the sight of the wing tip tanks and the explanation from my uncle that that's what allowed the plane to make it all the way to Belem after a stop in Rio, without refueling

Gorgeous pic! I was at Avalon that day and saw 'Connie' cruise gracefully overhead, though I didn't make it to the runway in time to get this shot. It was a very wet and grey day, but the dramatic skies made a great backdrop for this elegant aircraft.

Great photo in all respects. Well framed, good overall focus, lighting and exposure. It shows the aircraft at its best, as it was in its heyday. It was a one of a kind airliner.

The dark sky, the sunlit aircraft, the unique Constellation attitude and shape make this a very arresting picture. Well done.
