Good picture that illustrates my point--nicely cowled with a taper that covers and fairs-in the outer portions of the engine while the streamlined spinner covers the center. The L-1649A "Starliner"--an improved Super Constellation--has even more-streamlined engines.

It still looks lumpy compared to a streamlined inline, like those on the Albatross.

Hi Ricky,

It still looks lumpy compared to a streamlined inline, like those on the Albatross.



Be that as it may, when it comes to beauty, style, and grace, the Super Constellation is the gold standard against which all other propliners are judged.

Regards,

Lightning
