Museum of Flight - Lockheed Super G Constellation Photos

The  Museum of Flight in Seattle has acquired a Lockheed L-1049G Super Constellation.  The aircraft was delivered originally to Trans Canada Air Lines (TCA) in 1954, and retired by them in 1962.  It was delivered as  CF-TGE (originally delivered as an L-1049C, later modified to L-1049G standard.)  It will be displayed in  a glorious place of honor in the Air Park adjacent to some magnificent other airplanes.
