One of my all time favourites!

P.S. You can edit your post to add the pic from the other topic and, if I could remember how, I think you can delete it!

Great stuff

Although I saw a couple at Mildenhall I wasn't lucky enough to see a USAF Connie fly.

Did see the Breitling example at Farnborough - awesome

The MATS Connie looks as if it was at Nellis at the 1997 Anniversary show. What a show that was!!!. [Loved Nellis, hated Las Vegas} It is now a static exhibit in South Korea having been flow there in '95. It did, however perform in U.K. Airshows at Middle Wallop, North Weald, and Duxford, possibly some more as well, in company with the 'Berlin Airlift C.54. I took video of them, but no idea where it is!!. Lovely aeroplanes!!.

I don't really like jumping onto another member's post with my own pics.
Is it better to start my own one about Connies or add here?
Flickr has an add-on that creates automatic albums based on search criteria of your photos. So I have an album with about 30 pics of the things.

Personally I have no objections if you would like to add to the post unless there are any forum rules which prevent this?

Ok – This might be a bit long
All my Flickr photos are, to the best of my knowledge, dated correctly & have their geo0location set so the details of each are on Flickr (E&OE!!)
I’ve realised there are a couple of pure civil Supers here – if a problem, let me know and will remove

My very poor scanned slide of 54-157 EC-121S at Greenham Common in 1974 and the same aircraft at Illawarra Regional Airport NSW in September 2003 after being restored by the Australian Historical Aircraft Restoration Society and flown to Australia in 1996.

Poorly exposed Boots slide that deteriorated after 40 years in the loft...
