Qantas Lockheed L749 Constellation VH-EAB
VH-EAB was acquired by Qantas on 22 October 1947 and served until it was disposed of to BOAC on 26 February 1955. It is seen here in the pre-1952 mainly polished-metal colour scheme with dark blue trim and red QEA titles.
The Constellations were used to open through services on the Kangaroo Route from Australia to England in 1947 - click here to see an air mail cover flown on the inaugural service.
