Although my first flight in a commercial airliner was in a Boeing 707, I remember the drone of those big Pratt & Whitney engines overhead as a child. That was beautiful, Thanks Al.

The DC-7B was a beauty but the Lockheed Constellation had an even more gracefull look and was the last of the great piston powered airliners.

You just had to post that image, didn't you. It brought tears to my eyes. What a splendidly beautiful craft! There'll never be another like.
