    The A2A Constellation, if I'm not mistaken. It's in the video title!

    It's the A2A Lockheed 049 Constellation. FSX and P3D only at the moment.

    When I was five years old going on six, in 1950-51 my mom and I flew from Chicago's Midway airport to California in what I'm pretty sure was a Lockheed Constellation. I remember we left at night. I fell into a deep sleep like little kids do and I when woke up in daylight, we were still in the air. California was farther from Chicago in those days.

    I'm sure he's making a joke, based on the old TV show "The Prisoner", and how it relates to your thread title!

    Never saw that show, so the joke was over my head.

    No doubt! While it is a famous show among people who like obscure weird stories... it aired in '67 and wasn't seen by many people. I saw it on a re-run in the 1990's. So most are not aware of it's existence.

    Basically, an agent decides to quit, and gets drugged, taken to a weird psychadelic resort town, where he is repeatedly interogated. The interogators call him Number 6, one refers to himself as Number 2, and our protagonist repeatedly states that "I'm not a number!" to which they reply "you are Number 6!". He tries to leave, but discovers that "security" is made up of sentient "balloons" that swarm you and asphixiate you... so all in all, this thread unintentionally brought up memories of that strange mysterious show!

    The Prisoner was filmed on location at a private estate in North Wales called Portmeirion (pron. Portmerryon) which my wife and I visited a few years ago: https://portmeirion.wales/
