KLM - Royal Dutch Airlines
Lockheed L-1049C Super Constellation
Glasgow - Prestwick (PIK / EGPK)
UK - Scotland, September 9, 1959
Remark
Photographer
PH-LKX (cn 4508) Night turn round, movement of ground equipment and personel can be seen during the time exposure. Also note the only recently applied logo on the forward fuselage "40 Years 1919 - 1959" of KLM operations. This aircraft was finally withdrawn from service about two years later on 31 October 1961 at Amsterdam and broken up two years later.

Panair do Brasil
Lockheed L-049 Constellation
London - Heathrow (LHR / EGLL)
UK - England, September 5, 1957
Remark
Photographer
PP-PDD (cn 2033) Parked at the then International Terminal, still located at London Airport's north side. The period Pan Am van, the KLM DC-3 in the background, the tail of a BOAC Argonaut alongside before they were painted navy blue, and the Constellation just airborne, all add to the scene. These were the days before airport security fences, when it was possible to get photographs if you were careful and could outrun a policeman on a bike. No patrol cars on the apron in those days.

Trans World Airlines - TWA
Lockheed L-1049G Super Constellation
London - Heathrow (LHR / EGLL)
UK - England, 1956
Remark
Photographer
N7109C (cn 4590) Sharing the old Heathrow Northside tarmac with BOAC white tail Canadair Argonauts,the SuperG was the last stretch Connie with the original wing design. One of these caused a few worried phone calls and got a mention in the London papers when it flew across SouthEast England trailing smoke from an engine oil leak, I saw it on final to Heathrow where it arrived safely.

KLM - Royal Dutch Airlines
Douglas DC-3 (C-47A-80-DL)
Amsterdam - Schiphol (AMS / EHAM)
Netherlands, Mid 1950's
Remark
Photographer
PH-DAM (cn 19549) My father took this picture. I give his comment: In close-up a DC-3 can look impressive. I didn’t remember the registration of this one anymore, as I took this picture half a century ago! Thanks to Airliners.net members I found out that this is PH-DAM. As can be seen, Brownie box-cameras are good performers if used the right way. The people behind the plane belonged to the lucky few that could afford to get airborne these post-war days.
