The Lockheed Constellation airplane, often called the "Connie," was a prominent American propeller-driven airliner developed by Lockheed Corporation. It entered service in the early 1940s. The Constellation was known for its distinctive triple-tail design and graceful, dolphin-shaped fuselage. It was one of the first pressurized commercial aircraft, allowing for higher cruising altitudes and improved passenger comfort. KLM was one of the airlines that operated the Lockheed Constellation. The aircraft was well-suited for long-haul routes, and KLM utilized it on transatlantic services, contributing to the expansion of intercontinental air travel.
