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.

The ONLY Flying A-26A Counter Invader in the world!! (currently being restored)
This B-26K is a World War II A-26 Invader that received extensive modifications for the Vietnam war and was renamed the A-26A Counter Invader for political reasons. This is the only A-26A/B-26K that flies, that we know of. This is NOT a Martin Marauder B26, but a Douglas Invader A-26A. Short naming history for this aircraft: Built as A-26B or C, renamed B-26 after WWII when the Martin Marauder B-26 left service, then B-26K after the On Mark conversion, then A-26A because Thailand wouldn't allow bombers in Thailand during the Vietnam War. This is the Denny Lynch aircraft from Billings. It has been stripped of its paint for restoration. This is NOT an A-26B Invader. Two visible clues, 4 hard points on each wing, and tip tanks.
