This Qantas L-1049G includes a metal collectors tin to celebrate the history of the Super Constellation! Qantas was founded in the Queensland outback in 1920. Registered originally as the Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services Limited (QANTAS). In 1954, Qantas began flying Super Constellation aircraft twice weekly from Sydney to San Francisco and Vancouver via Fiji, Canton Island and Hawaii. By 1956 Qantas had a fleet of 34 propeller driven aircraft that carried a record number of passengers to the XVl Olympic Games in Melbourne. On 14 January 1958, two Super Constellations took off from Melbourne to inaugurate a pioneering round the world service. One travelled via India along the Kangaroo Route, while the other flew eastward on the Southern Cross Route via the United States. The Super Constellations circumnavigated the globe in opposite directions, arriving back in Sydney six days later. Before long, eight round the world services were operating weekly. The Connies would later be phased out by the Boeing 707.
