wouldn,t it be great to have one flyable
4-engine passenger aircraft... I know il2-AEP-PF is of course a combat flightsim but for those you like flying it must be a delight to fly a C-121 constellation, which is -as far as i know- one of the most beautiful aircraft i have ever seen...
Is there anyone else who shares my opinion

Very first Naval aircraft I flew in. Hence my nick. They were bucking broncos, at least the EC-121's were, and spat flames out the exhuast. Unfortunately, as the youngest crew member, it was always my job to wipe her down after the flight. While the boys were hitting the gate in Cubi Point I was busily spraying down the underside with mek and the like. Lots and lots of oil on them wings and flaps http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Constellation started it's life as a troop transport...so why not?
