Lockheed Constellation Aircraft

I think Infinite Flight could add older, nostalgic aircraft. such as the Concorde, Lockheed Constellation, Lockheed L-188 Electra, De Havilland Comet, SE 210 Caravelle, etc.



Lockheed Constellation

Lockheed Constellation or “Connie” is a four-engine piston aircraft built by Lockheed between 1943 and 1958 in Burbank. A total of 856 units were built in 4 models, all with the same characteristic design whose dolphin shape has triple empennage. It was a very used airplane in the transport of passengers and like airplane of military transport.
