Lockheed Model 049 Constellation

Product Description

The "Connie" is a simply beautiful aircraft and Koike has done it great service in this painting, with the sun reflecting elegantly in the background.  Portrayed here is the very first Constellation flown by TWA, "Star of Paris."  Interestingly, in their first few years of operation, TWA was The Trans World Airline (singular). They didn't add the 's' until 1950.
