The August issue.

Open it up and there's a Lockheed Super Constellation special to me because me, my wife, and infant daughter flew on one from Pensacola to Boston back in 1957.  To my eye, and many others the most beautiful airplane ever built.

Also in the issue is an article about Commander John Rogers transpacific flight from California to Hawaii in 1925 when he ran out of gas, rigged sails from the wings fabric and sailed it the last 450 miles into Nawiliwili Harbor Kauai.  Many years ago my Mother gave me the book.  I always thought the PN-9 would be an interesting model to build.

I agree Robert, the "Connie" is an elegant specimen of aircraft engineering.

For those like me that lack this magazine, found the PN-9 flying boat story at:

https://www.usni.org/magazines/naval-history-magazine/2019/february/ten-days-lost-sea-first-flight-and-voyage-hawaii

That transpacific feat San Francisco to Hawaii in 1925 was amazing, including the last 450 miles, drift sailing 10 days to Kawaii Island, a worthwhile read with photos.

That marvels Captain Bligh's amazing feat in 4 thousand 500 miles? journey in an open sailing longboat after mutineers in the HMS bounty abandoned them.
