A flight close to the Swiss Alps - but not too close because we love this airplane! - with the legendary Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation of the 1950s is a spectacular experience. It is one of only two existing Super Connies worldwide that are still airworthy and the only one that is admitted for passengers flights (for members only). What a great piece of aviation history!
Flight Route: Samedan - St Moritz - Maloja - Septimerpass - Bivio - Lake Marmorera - Savognin - Tiefencastel - Filisur - Davos - Klosters - Flüela Pass - Zernez - S-chanf - Samedan Airport
The Super Connie is still considered the most beautiful aircraft ever built. The elegant dolphin-shaped fuselage and the triple tail design are a feast for the eyes. A very spectacular part is the engine start-up which is always accompanied by smoke and fire. The distinctive sound of the four powerful 18-cylinder radial engines (Wright R-3350) make the heart of any plane enthusiast beat faster. Enjoy!
