Description
Photograph of the interior of the Lockheed Corporation plant, showing the manufacture of Super Constellation airplanes, ca.1950. A large plane sits in the foreground, at left, and several men stand beneath it, while two others can be seen inside its door and on its wing. Several ladders lead up to different points on the plane, and a row of other aircrafts can be seen behind it.
Photoprint reads: "Super constellations take shape -- here is first super constellations production line photo, showing five of Lockheed aircraft corporation's new, larger transports streaming down final assembly hangar at Burbank, California. Wings, engines, tail assembly, landing gear and interior fittings are installed on this line. First of 113-foot-long luxury liners, designed for 88 passengers, is timed for delivery (to eastern air lines) in November, regular service on east coast in December. Military and airline orders for super constellations total nearly quarter-billion dollars".
