It shows USAAF C-121A 48-609, which was c/n 2601, one of the first batch of Constellation L-749's that went to the USAF as C-121's. 48-609 was delivered to the USAF MATS Atlantic Division on the 18th of January 1949. Her first assigment was to fly supplies in support of the air bridge to berlin, between Westover AFB and Frankfurt Rhein-Main. She was later converted to VC-121, with a luxury interior, flying VIPs all over the world.She was retired in 1968. She was bought by Christler Flying Service, registered as N9464 and converted for agricultural spraying. She later flew with Beaver Air Spray and Conifair as G-GXKO. In 1984, she was sold to John TRavolta for $150.000 and registered N494TW and stored at Santa Barbara. She was sold to Vern Raburn in 1987, who restored her and painted her in the scheme of this repaint. She was sold to United Technologies in 2005, who donated her to Korean Air. She is currently on static display at Jeju Island, Korea, painted in Air Korea colors. Two of her engines were used to make N749NL, the Constellation of the Aviodrome in the Netherlands fly again.

    This folder contains a repaint for the A2A Wings of Silver Lockheed L-049 Constellation. It shows OE-IFE, a L-749 of Austrian Charter company Aero Transport Flugbetriebsgesellschaft - Formed early in 1958 in association with the West German charter company LTU, charter flights were initially carried out with Vickers Vikings and one Dove on holiday destinations in Europe. In June 1961, an ex TWA 049 (OE-IFA) was bought and this joined the Vikings on IT and general passenger charter work, particularly from Vienna to the Mediterranean resorts. Falcon Airways tried to lease the aircraft in the summer of 1961, but had considerable challenges obtaining permission from the British aviation authorities. In 1962, a 749 Constellation was purchased from Korean Airlines, becoming OE-IFE, and a further 749 Freighter in May 1963 (OE-IFO). World-wide passenger and freight charters were flown by the aircraft, and the Connies were the first aircraft to show the Austrian flag in New York, and Tokyo in July 1961. The former owner of Falcon Airways, Marian Kozubski acted as Constellation chief pilot until troubles began when one of their Connies was grounded at Djibouti in November 1963 after alledgedly being used for gun-running. Subsequently, OE-IFA was impounded at Vienna early in 1964. OE-IFE was impounded at Schiphol, pending the payment of fuel, landing and other service charges. The company ceased all operations during 1964. OE-IFE was eventually scrapped at Schiphol. Repaint by Jan Kees Blom, based on the paintkit by A2A.

    This folder contains a repaint for the A2A Wings of Silver Lockheed L-049 Constellation. It shows USAAF C-121A 48-610 'Columbine II'. Columbine II was built as a C-121A at Burbank, California and bailed to Lockheed to support the Lockheed Air Service International maintenance facility at Keflavík, Iceland. Early in 1953 this aircraft was converted to VC-121A-LO standard for use by President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower until replaced by VC-121E-LO Columbine III (s/n 53-7885), operated by the 1254th Air Transport Squadron United States Air Force (USAF). After being replaced, Columbine II continued in service with the United States Air Force until retired to Davis–Monthan Air Force Base for storage, during the late 1960s. The aircraft was sold as part of a package lot to Mel Christler, a Wyoming businessman who owned a crop-dusting service and was made airworthy in 1989 and flown to Abilene, KS for Eisenhower's 100th birthday celebration and to an air show at Andrews Air Force Base. In 2003 it was flown to Marana Airport, Arizona. The aircraft owner was considering cutting the aircraft up as scrap, when the Smithsonian Institution, during a research project contacted the owner and informed him that 48-610 was, in fact, a former presidential aircraft. The owner then, in the hope of finding a new owner willing to display the aircraft, attempted to sell the plane at auction, but it was not sold. Columbine II was purchased and moved from Arizona to Bridgewater, Virginia in March 2016 for restoration by Dynamic Aviation. The purchase price has not been disclosed but the purchaser, Karl D. Stoltzfus Sr., founder of Dynamic Aviation, has said it was less than $1.5 million. Dynamic Aviation mechanics did significant work on the plane in Arizona in preparation for its flight to Virginia. The restoration is expected to take several years to complete. Call-sign Air Force One Over Richmond, Virginia in 1954, Eastern Airlines Flight 8610, a commercial flight, shared the same air space with Air Force Flight 8610, which was carrying President Dwight D. Eisenhower at the time, prompting the adoption of the unique call sign Air Force One whenever the President was on board any aircraft. Repaint by Jan Kees Blom, based on the paintkit by A2A.

    This folder contains a repaint for the A2A Wings of Silver Lockheed L-049 Constellation. It shows USAAF C-121A 48-613 'Bataan'. In 1948, the U.S. Air Force ordered from Lockheed ten Model L-749 Constellations and designated them C-121As. The type had a strengthened floor and a large cargo door fitted to the aft fuselage, but could also be fitted with a removable 44-seat passenger cabin, or house 20 stretchers for medevac missions. The ten aircraft (AF serial #s 48-0608 through 0617) were delivered between December 1948 and the first part of 1949 and were based at Westover AFB as part of the Atlantic Division of the Military Air Transport Service (MATS). Within a short time, eight of the aircraft, including Bataan, were involved in the Berlin Airlift, making almost continuous Atlantic crossings delivering cargo to England or Frankfurt, Germany, for onward transport. Their long range was a big factor; the eight flew over 5 million miles during the Airlift. Shortly after the conclusion of the Airlift, the C-121s were withdrawn from service and flown to Lockheed for conversion to high-speed VIP transports for the U.S. Air Force. The cargo interiors were removed, extra windows were added, and weather radar was fitted to the nose, resulting in the familiar, more pointed nose. The C-121A was the first type in USAF service to be fitted with weather radar. After conversion, the aircraft were assigned to various VIPs. Number 613 became the personal aircraft of General Douglas MacArthur and was used by him during his time as Supreme Commander Allied Powers during the Korean War. He named the aircraft Bataan after a peninsula in the Philippines. Bataan was the last stronghold of MacArthur's American forces defending the islands against the Japanese in 1942. The General flew many notable missions in the Bataan, including his famous meeting with President Truman on Wake Island, and 17 missions over the Korean battlefields. His last flight took him back to San Francisco after he had been fired by Truman for making political statements. The aircraft was thereafter used by his successors, Generals Ridgeway and Clark. Subsequently, the airplane was assigned to the ranking Army General in the Pacific and was based at Hickam AB in Hawaii. It served in this role until its retirement from Air Force service in 1966. At that time, all the C-121As were sent to Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson, AZ, for storage. Many were stripped of military equipment and sold to civilian operators, ending up in Canada as fire fighters and bug sprayers. No.613 was luckier and was assigned to NASA for use in conjunction with the Apollo space program. Redesignated as NASA 422, the airplane was refitted with banks of sophisticated computers, tracking equipment, and communications gear used to calibrate the many air and ground based tracking and communications relay stations around the globe used to keep in constant contact with orbiting spacecraft. In order to fulfill this mission, the aircraft was flown over the Caribbean and Pacific. With the cancellation of the Apollo program in 1970, #422 was sent to the Army Aviation Museum at Fort Rucker, AL, for public display. After 20+ years on display in the open, #613 was given a new lease on life when Planes of Fame Air Museum acquired her for its collection. After a full restoration to flying condition, the airplane was flown to Texas where she was outfitted with an exact reproduction of her original VIP interior. She was flown to Planes of Fame Air Museum at Chino, California, then to Planes of Fame Valle/Grand Canyon facility in Valle, Arizona. The Lockheed VC-121A Constellation "Bataan" has recently been sold to Lewis Air Legends of Texas. In January 2016, the "Bataan" was flown to Planes of Fame Air Museum in Chino, CA for restoration by Fighter Rebuilders. The restoration will be completed in early 2018.
