Could someone please supply the history of Convair's commercial airliners division. I've looked on the web and didn't find much other than the Convair 880 and 990 preservation projects. I'd like to know more about the history of the company that built those aircraft. Thanks in advance!

It is not much, but if you access the General Dynamics website at http://www.generaldynamics.com, then click on Search, put Convair Division in the search box, then click on Aviation and Aerospace, it will provide you with some information on the history of Consolidated-Vultee Aircraft Corp, and the formation by General Dynamics of the Convair Division, when GD took over Consolidated-Vultee in 1954.
Aircraft specifics though are not a strong feature. It mainly represents a history of the company by date.
