  • BOAC Constellation at Zurich

BOAC Lockheed Constellation Limited Edition Photograph - by Aviation Photographer Peter Keating

 

It had been a long trip. Leaving London Airport on 28 May 1955 Peter Keating had been away for 24 days on the long-haul flight to Sydney and back. He had flown 15 different legs in six different BOAC Constellations and now he had just under an hour at Zurich before the last leg of the journey. Steward duties done he took the opportunity to take his cameras and document the aircraft in front of the main terminal at Zurich.  

 

This is Lockheed L749A Constellation G-ANUZ 'Belvedere' which had been on charge with BOAC since just February of that year, having previously been with KLM, as PH-TDG, and Capital, as N90621. This was typical of the long haul routes flown by the Constellations - Zurich, Beirut, Karachi, Calcutta, Singapore, Jakarta, Darwin, Sydney and return the same way. This last leg from Zurich to London took two hours 50 minutes, almost twice the flight time today.
