Swiss ‘Connie’ to Germany

During July Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation HB-RSC Star of Switzerland was being dismantled at Basel Airport following acquisition by a group of German investors, and will soon arrive at its new home at Bremgarten, south-west Germany. Operated by the Super Constellation Flyers Association for the past 15 years, it is now hoped that the new owners will have the machine flying again in about three years’ time.

It can now be expected that the majestic Super Constellation HB-RSC Star of Switzerland, here taking off at Fairford in July 2013, will again be seen over Europe in a few years.
