FS9 Textures for the Lockheed 749 Constellation by Manfred Jahn and Volker Bohme.
The textures depict Lockheed C-121A Constellations C-GXKO Tanker 1, and C-GXKR Tanker 2, when they were used by Conifair for spraying budworms in the forestry in the 1980's.
C-GXKO, ex 48-609 c/n2601, went on to become the well known MATS Constellation owned by Vern Raeburn and then was acquired by a museum in Korea where it is now on permanent display.
C-GXKR, ex 48-612, c/n2604, sat derelict for some time after being retired from spraying duties. It was then acquired by a museum in Holland and restored to flying condition and KLM colors, and flown across to Lelystad, Holland, where it is now on display at the Aviodrome, and although not flown, it is kept in a state of airworthiness. Repaints by Mark Rogers.
