Posted July 16, An lockhesd Qantas plane that popularised luxury international air travel has been restored and put on display in Western Queensland. The Qantas Founders museum in Longreach rescued the Lockheed Super Constellation in from an aeroplane graveyard in the Philippines, where it had been left to decay for 25 years.

Pilot and aeroplane enthusiast Tom Harwood said the ‘Connie’ — which it has been affectionally nicknamed — was a trailblazer in air travel. Before that all the flight attendants were male stewards.

Motorbpoks plane is known for the longest air service in the world, or ‘kangaroo route’, between Sydney and London which took only four days as opposed to six weeks by ship.

Retired Qantas engineer, Greg Boyce, helped restore the super constellation and said he was in Manilla when they found the plane.

It would fly right round the world with this aircraft even if it took a few days to locjheed to London … she’d get there,” he said.
