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.

Lockheed Super Constellation Start-Up & Take Off at Airport Bern-Belp
A legendary Lockheed L-1049F Super Constellation, HB-RSC, visited Airport Bern-Belp in Switzerland. Engine start-up with flames and smoke. Flame out while turning on the runway. Close-up take off and great engine sound. The "Super Connie" is still considered the most beautiful aircraft ever built. The elegant dolphin-shaped fuselage and the triple tail design are a feast for the eyes. The distinctive sound of the four powerful 18-cylinder radial engines (Wright R-3350) make the heart of any plane enthusiast beat faster. The screechy brakes might put a smile on the faces of many people. Enjoy the close-up view of the spectacular Super Constellation; a great piece of aviation history or in other words a flying legend! The Swiss watch manufacturer BREITLING is the main sponsor of this classic airliner. Video Editing Software: Final Cut Express and iMovie Camera: Sony VG10 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED BY matthiashaenni ©

First Engine Start FW190
FW190A-8 Werknummer 173056 quickly roared to life Sept. 21, 2009 after 8 1/2 years of restoration work on the four major components of 173056: Tail, fuselage, wings and engine. Located at the Baton Rouge Metro Airport at PAI Aero, this restoration is a project of Don and Linda Hansens engineering company. The engine was started but shut down quickly as a precaution due to lack of oil pressure indication - found later to be an incorrect pressure sender. Major Frank Hohmann from Flug-Werk in Gammelsdorf, Germany worked intently for most of September, as did Don Hansen and crew Rusty Gautreaux, Danny Trogé and Stephen Hansen to complete engine rigging. This de-preservation/pre-oiling run was a smoky success, with the 2000HP Ash82T engine starting instantly on the first try after 30 years in storage. The first flight is planned for Summer, 2010.

DC-3 Short field landing
This is the proper way to land a DC-3 on a short strip. Nose down to kill all lift and get maximum pressure on the landing gear, apply full brakes, let the tail down gently when the speed drops and you end up with a ground roll of 300 meters. This day there was a five knot crosswind from the left so the wind didn't help much to lower the landing speed.

They found a derelict Connie, registration number N6937C, in storage at Falcon Field in Mesa, Arizona. It was one of the last Constellations off Lockheed's assembly lines in 1958, and was built as a cargo plane for Slick Airways. Indeed, Kansas City was probably the only place in the world where this transformation could have taken place. There was a core of retired TWA employees living here: pilots, flight engineers, mechanics, hostesses, etc. All specialists in every aspect of propeller driven aircraft in general, and Constellations in particular. After 18 months in the hangar at Kansas City Downtown Airport, the Connie emerged, resplendent in her new Save A Connie livery. The Lockheed Constellation was converted from cargo to passenger configuration. She promptly began flying the Airshow circuit, where she continues to awe and inspire. In the late 90's, employees from TWA's Kansas City overhaul base donated a completely new paint job in the original TWA colors. The Star of America has been involved in television and movie releases, as well as several television commercials. It was featured in the Arts and Entertainment documentary entitled First Flights, narrated by Astronaut Neil Armstrong, and the motion picture, Voyager starring Sam Shepard released in the U.S. in 1992. The Connie was also used for interior scenes for the movie, Ace Ventura - When Nature Calls, in 1995, starring Jim Carrey. You also see this Super Constellation in The Aviator starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Howard Hughes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_Constellation The Lockheed Constellation Connie was a four engine each with 18 pistons of Radial design, the Wright R-3350 (also used on the Boeing B-29 Superfortress, C-97 Stratofreighter and Douglas DC-7) propeller-driven airliner built by Lockheed between 1943 and 1958 at its Burbank, California, USA, facility. A total of 856 aircraft were produced in four models, all distinguished by a triple-tail design and dolphin-shaped fuselage. The Constellation was used as a civilian airliner and as a U.S. military air transport plane, seeing service in the Berlin Airlift. It was the presidential aircraft for U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower Columbine I, II and III. Since 1937, Lockheed had been working on the L-044 Excalibur, a four-engine pressurized airliner. In 1939, Trans World Airlines TWA, at the encouragement of major stockholder Howard Hughes, requested a 40-passenger transcontinental airliner with 3,500 mi (5,630 km) range - well beyond the capabilities of the Excalibur design. TWA's requirements led to the L-049 Constellation. The Constellation's wing design was close to that of the P-38 Lightning, differing mostly in scale The distinctive triple tail kept the aircraft's overall height low enough to fit in existing hangars while new features included hydraulically-Boosted controls and a thermal de-icing system used on wing and tail leading edges.The plane had a top speed of over 340 mph, a cruise speed of 300 mph, and a service ceiling of 24,000 ft. The advent of jet airliners, with the de Havilland Comet, Boeing 707, Douglas DC-8 and Convair 880, rendered the piston-engined Constellation obsolete. The first routes lost to jets were the long overseas routes, but Constellations continued to fly domestic routes. The last scheduled passenger flight of a four-engined piston-engined airliner in the United States was made by a TWA L749 on May 11, 1967 from Philadelphia to Kansas City, MO. However, Constellations remained in freight service for years to come, and were the mainstay of Eastern Airlines' shuttle service between New York, Washington, and Boston until 1968.

Most Beautiful Flight with Super Constellation through Swiss Alps
A flight close to the Swiss Alps - but not too close because we love this airplane! - with the legendary Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation of the 1950s 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 passengers flights (for members only). What a great piece of aviation history! Flight Route: Samedan - St Moritz - Maloja - Septimerpass - Bivio - Lake Marmorera - Savognin - Tiefencastel - Filisur - Davos - Klosters - Flüela Pass - Zernez - S-chanf - Samedan The Super Connie is still considered the most beautiful aircraft ever built. The elegant dolphin-shaped fuselage and the triple tail design are a feast for the eyes. A very spectacular part is the engine start-up which 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. Enjoy!
