Postage Stamp - 1/300 Lockheed L-1049G Super Constellation TWA
In 1939, Trans World Airlines, at the instigation of major stockholder Howard Hughes, requested a 40-passenger transcontinental airliner with a range of 3,500 mi. TWA's requirements led to the L-049 Constellation, designed by Lockheed engineers including Kelly Johnson and Hall Hibbard. With the onset of World War II, the TWA aircraft entering production were converted to an order for C-69 Constellation military transport aircraft. After World War II, the Constellation came into its own as a fast civilian airliner. Aircraft already in production for the USAAF as C-69 transports were finished as civilian airliners, with TWA receiving the first on 1 October 1945.
The first purpose-built passenger Constellations were the more powerful L-649 and L-749 (which had more fuel in the outer wings). These were followed by the L-1049 Super Constellation with a longer fuselage. The L-1049G first flew on December 17, 1954 and entered service with TWA and Northwest in 1955. The nickname "Super G" (first used by TWA) was later adopted for the L-1049G.
