The last plane in Lockheed's Constellation line, the L-1649 was an airliner manufactured from 1956-58. The aircraft entered service with TWA in 1957, flying 30 weekly flights from New York to Europe until Boeing 707s replaced them in the early 1960s. A total of 44 were manufactured and it remained in limited usage through the 1980s.
This 1/200 scale, die cast model of the "Jetstream" — as it was known to TWA employees of the era — features a nostalgic Trans World Airlines livery, free-spinning propellers, realistic engine fronts, and simulated canopy and cockpit windows. Measures approximately 7" long with a 9" wingspan.
