Notes:

The Lockheed Super Constellation L1049 first flew in October 1950 and was a refinement of previous Constellation designs and was the first true international prop liner of the era. Power was provided by 4x Wright R3350 compound radials developing 3250 hp. The "Connie" was used worldwide by various airlines until the introduction of the Boeing 707 ushered in the jet age and spelt the end of the intercontinental prop liners.
