The Lockheed L-749A Constellation was among the first few planes to have a pressurized cabin, which was considered a luxury back then, because your ears would hurt pretty bad up in the air in unpressurized planes. This plane proved itself to be a good workhorse for Trans World Airlines from the 1940s to the jet age in the 70's.
