I read a story set in the present where someone takes a Lockheed
Constellation from London to New York. This is a huge anachronism,
right? How long has it been since any Constellations were in service?
(In the current issue of Airliners magazine there's an article on a
midair collision between a Constellation and a DC-8 in 1960, which says
"Subsequent to TWA placing 707s into service, the Connies were
relegated to less prestigious routes such as Columbus to New York.")
