When Howard Hughes bought a majority stake in TWA, he sought a new plane to give the company an edge. Lockheed delivered the 44-passenger Constellation, and—as was typical with many of Howard Hughes’ endeavors—the plane was lightning fast, setting a number of land and speed records.
But the “Connie” wasn’t just fast. It became known as the epitome of class and luxury too. This polished aluminum model of that preeminent plan measures about 28 inches long by 30 inches wide and 5 inches tall.
The Constellation was sophisticated, and so are you. Embrace the golden age of propeller-driven flight and add some vintage style to your home or office.
