Lockheed Super Constellation

Breitling Super Constellation
Dear Judy and Mark,
My favorite airplane (other than gliders) is the Lockheed Super Constellation. Especially the one we are so happy to have operating in Switzerland.
I run a privately non-profit website in Germany with main-content of Ultralight-Soaring.
Lately, I also published a longer article at my site, telling the restoration-story of a Lockheed Super Constellation "Star of Switzerland", which is owned and operated in Switzerland by "Super Constellation Flyers Association”. We call our Constellation “the most unusual club aircraft in the world.”
As a just 18 year old boy, I started with Lufthansa as Ground Engineer, working at main-base Hamburg. At first I worked on Lockheed Super Constellations, which most people call her "The Queen of the Skys", which she still is!!!
I´m fully aware, that the English translation of my article is not a perfect translation as done by a professional translator, but I do believe it might be better as done by "Mr. Google".
In case you are interested to use my article as a story at your website or link to the article at my website, please feel free to do so.
Furthermore, I plan to extend my website by an additional column, to inform regularly about events of the Swiss Connie-Team, as well as of the second still airworthy Connie in Australia, also about those two under restoration in the USA in Auburn (Lufthansa) and Kansas City Historic Museum.
Best regards from Germany
Find 'em, See 'em, Fly,'em! And have a great flight!
