L-1049C Super Cosntellation
1954 TCA acquired a fleet of Lockheed L-1049Cs. These were later
augmented with some
L-1049Gs. This, the first of the 1049Cs, was
converted to L1049E freighter status in 1963
(when the jets
superceded these grand old ladies). It was brokered by Airmotive
in Burbank, but,
in the event, no buyers
could be found for it and it was broken up at Burbank in 1964.
shot came from
Trans Canada Air Lines in the mid 1950s.
