The product number is 570596.
Lockheed Super Constellation
Rego VH-EAP Named Southern Zephyr.


One of the last Lockheed Super Constellations ever built was this one. It was only granted a short stay as it was delivered to Qantas Empire Airways on 19th of November 1957. This was Qantas last Connie as it was decommissioned by Qantas in 1963 as Boeing had started delivering the 707-138's. A short life in the age of this aircraft, but the dawn of the jet age was already here.
