Example text

ABOVE RIGHT: The Flight Engineer's panel was considerably more complicated for the Super Constellation than for the 0-49 - 749 series. The sloping upper panel had quantity gauges for all seven fuel tanks on its top row. common to the narrow-bodied airliners of the time. This was partly due to the influence of top designer Henry Dreyfuss, who followed in the steps of Raymond Loewy for TWA by designing the interiors for KLM and Air France, at a cost of $1. 5 million. Airliners were nothing but a 'big pickle' said Loewy, so by using natural wood finishes, fine-art murals, small tables and lamps, and soft indirect lighting, Dreyfuss made the Super Connie more homely and welcoming to the new generation of post-war air travellers.

First Class compartments and lounges were located at the rear when fitted, and sleeping berths forward of these, but as with the 'short' Connie, cabin specifications varied greatly on the 1049 series. KLM's first aircraft had (from tail to nose), a first class cabin with 11 seats, the lounge (eight seats), a 'Tourist' cabin for 40 and another first class cabin seating 12 for a total of 63. Toilets were at the extreme tail and ahead of the main section, and bulkheads helped reduce the 'tunnel' effect 31 ABOVE LEFT: The overhead control panel on the Super Constellation was a noted hazard to pilots' heads, although it was raised and cut back compared to earlier models.
