was their first airplane. After only 5 years, it was re-sold. Mostly parked

Spectacular Lockheed Super Constellation visual Approach - Paris Air Show 2013 ( HD )
The Lockheed Super Constellation was built between 1943 and 1958. 856
aircrafts were produced during these 15 years. I have tried to catch the
Super Constellation with the well known nick name "Super Conni" since many
years but it was never flying to an airport near my home airport. This time
we decided to drive 500 km (320 miles) to Paris with one goal: Getting a
good video and a good picture of this old lady. I am very content with the
result because this visual approach was very impressive in my opinion.
Thanks to " Breitling Super Constellation" for keeping this beauty in the
air. Last year they had to cancel all flights due to technical problems.
Thanks for watching, I hope you like and please don` t forget to rate.
