Simply known as the "Connie", the four engined Super Constellation was one of the first transatlantic airliners of the post-war period. To meet the increasing demand for air transport across large distances in comfort, this extended version of the original Constellation could carry 71 passengers in First Class or 95 in Economy. The 500km/hr speed was markedly better performance than its main competitors could achieve at that time, and by using increasingly efficient engines and more fuel tanks, crossing the Atlantic and needing fewer stops whilst crossing the Pacific , enabled it to push forward the whole experience of passenger transportation.
