Super-G Constellation Cutaway, 1955

Super-G Constellation Cutaway, 1955

A fine cutway from 1955 by famed illustrator Rolf Klep, of a Super-G Constellation.

This is actually part of an amazing double-spread from a LIFE magazine, showing both this aircraft and the oceanliner Cristoforo Columbo.

Accompanying text notes that the Constellation had a flexible seating arrangement.  In this drawing, tourist class passengers occupied the forward compartment, while first class passengers enjoyed reclining seats with foot rests in the middle compartment.

The Super G was produced from 1951 to 1958.
