American Airlines, 1949

Webp.net-resizeimage (2)
Super Connie NC90926 (“Star of Tunis”) heads an all-star ensemble of American Airlines heavies.  B-377 Stratocruiser (NX1023V, “Clipper Golden Gate”) is next. It was the second prototype of the 377 and, judging by its lack of company markings plus the sizable crowd, had probably just arrived. Sadly, it crashed in Manila on 2 June, 1958.      Last in the line is the stalwart DC-6.
