Dwight,
an older gentleman I know was about to throw about 2000 old postcards in the garbage...I saved them
im now sharing history on FA of the old airlines and airliners that are a memory now

thanks for enjoying

Im thinking this might be a super connie. The little windows above the cockpit and the intakes atop the cowls are different from other constellations ive seen (including the giant photo on my wall im looking at).

I tend to think that this is a shot of a very early Connie on a test flight out of Lockheed Burbank CA, given the background terrain and also the upper overhead cockpit windows...as per the later Aero Commanders.
