Lockheed Constellation Recently Scrapped

Constellations Recently Scrapped



During the past fifteen years the Lockheed Constellation has been recognized as a historically significant aircraft and very few of the remaining fifty or so airframes have been scrapped. Many of the surviving aircraft have been restored from near-derelict condition and are now valued museum exhibits. In addition to those aircraft confirmed to have been scrapped since 2000, I've included aircraft that were scrapped prior to 2000 but significant portions remain in scrapyards and/or museums.
