Eastern Air Lines Lockheed L-049 Constellation  N86516         (c/n  2043)


                                         In 1956/57 Eastern leased ten Lockheed L-049 Constellations from TWA.  One is seen above in
                                         this image from the Mike Sparkman collection.  Although on short-term lease (six months or so) the
                                         aircraft were all painted in full Eastern livery, although they retained the TWA white top, as opposed
                                         to the all metal finish on their own L-649s which never were white topped.
