Reviews - What do customers think about Lockheed Constellation?
Beautiful book! Dec 26, 2006
If you are a "Constellation" buff or simply enjoy reading about the golden age of air travel, this is a "must have" book. As other reviewers have noted, the illustrations of the "Connie" in different liveries are simply awesome.
If you love the Constellation, you'll love this book Nov 9, 2006
I have many books about the Constellation, but none surpasses this book for picture quality and detail. There are many aircraft color schemes and markings for airliners and military aircraft along with detailed information about each Constellation series. It is filled with a huge number of crisp and clear black and white and color photographs, and best of all the entire printing is on glossy paper. Considering the picture variety and quality and the great amount of detailed information this is a must have for Connie fans.
Best of the Connie Books Aug 6, 2006
I have all of the books published on the Constellation, and this one is the best. A picture is indeed worth a thousand words!!
lockheed constellation by H & C is a star May 21, 2006
As usual with Histoire & Collections mongraphs, this is outstanding volume is well worth its Anmazon price. Achival photos and other time-period items justify this book as a nostalgic treasure. At the same time, the details of the mechanics of the parts of the aircraft, its history in detail and the inclusive, myriad of stunning side profiles, excellently and artistically painted, showing virtually evey model ever flown are almost without equal in any single-type aircraft volume. Don't miss this book if you like classic, commercial/military aircraft and one of the most beautful and functional planes of yesteryear. It's a gem!
Great Avation Pictorial History of Lockheed Constellation May 17, 2006
One of the most visually appealing books on the Lockheed Constellation I have ever seen. Excellent Lockheed archive photos combined with historic advertising artwork. Offers a complete history of the aircraft. Unfortunately, the text was very literally translated from the French. The outstanding profile illustrations ( approx 130 civil and 20 military ) are worth the price of the book alone! An outstanding book, even with the translated text.
