After doing a little research - This aircraft is L0749A Constellation. Built in 1947 and delivered to Qantas as VH-EAF. They then sold her to BOAC on 16 Aug 54 and registered as G-ANTF. She was again sold on by BOAC on 6 Dec 57. I believe it was destroyed by fire in Jun 71 after being set on fire by children at Coventry Airport.

Boac did not have any Super Constellations, they chose the DC7C

Sorry to correct you this was not a weight and balance problem, the nosewheel failed to extend. My Father ferried the aircraft back to the UK. Also but itís not a super Constellation it was an 049 or a 749 I canít remember which.
