    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    There it is – up in the sky!

    I’ve never shot a plane, but I often find them in my photos.

    Especially when I use tight-grained films.

    With even greater magnification, you can sometimes see the pilot.

    Taken with a TF (tiny format) SLR (Pentax 110 SLR) on Verichrome Pan. The galley of the restaurant is upstairs in the fuselage of the Super G.

    Robert, where (and when) was this taken? My father spent many hours flying in the US Navy version of the Constellation - "Willy Victor" back in the 1960's. He will get a kick out of this.

    This was made in the late '70's early '80's on a trip to the Princeton NJ area. I believe this was in PA just on or near the NJ border. They still kept the bubble port just behind the cockpit (presumably so the crew could see which engine was on fire).

    Hi Robert,

    Where was this taken? It reminds me of something from my childhood.

    Re: Aircraft

    Okay, I found this on the web. More detail than I was aware of:
    the aircraft was purchased by Jim Flannery in August 1967 for use as a cocktail lounge atop his restaurant in Penndel, Pennsylvania. N1005C opened for business above “Jim Flannery’s Restaurant” in August 1968 and for 29 years it was a local landmark along U.S. Route 1 in Penndel. All good things must come to an end and in July 1997 she was hoisted back down to earth to make room for an Amoco service station. Instead of scrapping the airplane, the enlightened folks at Amoco donated the aircraft to the AMC Museum and she was moved by road to Dover on October 25, 1997. The aircraft was stored disassembled at the museum until July 2003, when she was reassembled using the engines, props and undercarriage salvaged from NC-121K BuNo 141292. These components had been discarded when N1005C was converted to a cocktail lounge back in 1968.
