Lockheed Constellation Hulks and Wrecks

Constellation Wrecks and Hulks



During the past fifteen years the Lockheed Constellation has been recognized as a historically significant aircraft and very few of the remaining fifty or so airframes have been scrapped. Many of the surviving aircraft have been restored from near-derelict condition and are now valued museum exhibits. There are still a number of aircraft wrecks and hulks scattered around the world. While there is no chance that any of these aircraft will ever fly again or be restored for static display, I still consider them "survivors."
