PP-VDE  Lockheed L-1049G Super Constellation            (c/n  4684)


                                     This is a Lockheed California Company color image, circa 1958 of the penultimate L-1049G
                                     delivered to the Brazilian airline.  The Varig Super Connies were built to a Qantas order but
                                     not taken up by that operator.  PP-VDE only served from 1957 until 1963 before being with-
                                     drawn from service at Porto Alegre.  It was broken up in 1967.  It would be unthinkable today
                                     to scrap an airliner after it was only ten years old.
