N1025V taxiing for take-off from Sydney's Runway 25. When Qantas replaced its Super Constellations with 707s on the Pacific route, Pan Am was still operating Stratocruisers on most flights because its 707 fleet was stretched thin. By the start of 1960 the Stratocruisers were gone. N1025V was retired and later sold to the Israeli Air Force. Photo by the late Brian White, of Sydney.
