A Super Constellation Through The Swiss Alps

Flying on the legendary Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation of the 1950s through Swiss Alps is a spectacular experience. It is one of only two existing Super Connies worldwide that are still airworthy and the only one that is admitted for passenger’s flights (for members only). A very spectacular part is the engine start-up that is always accompanied by smoke and fire. The distinctive sound of the four powerful 18-cylinder radial engines (Wright R-3350) make the heart of any plane enthusiast beat faster. What a great piece of aviation history!
