The Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation, aka "Super Connie", is a propeller-driven, four-engined commercial airliner produced by Lockheed Corporation. It has the iconic triple-tail design and the distinctive dolphin shaped fuselage of all aircraft in the Constellation line. It was actually an improved version of the L-049, stretched by 18 ft to compete with rival DC-6. Eastern Airlines was one of the 4 major domestic airlines from 1926 to 1991. It was headed by World War I flying ace Eddie Rickenbacker in its early years. The L-1049 Super Connie entered commercial service with Eastern Air Lines in December 1951 flying from Miami to New York. Coming full circle, the last L-1049 flight in the US was also conducted by Eastern Airlines in February 1968.
