Some special links for the Constellation:

Ralph M. Petterson’s Constellation Survivors Website — kept current and well informed

How the Constellation Became the Star of the Skies — shameless pun aside, well written history on the manufacturer’s website

Breitling’s Super Constellation — which is kept flying with many photos of this aircraft as well as news of four other Constellations
