Convair 880/990 In Service?

Sun Mar 21, 1999 1:09 pm

Does anyone know if there are any Convair 880/990's still in commercial, private, or military service anywhere in the world? If so where are they and who flys them? Thanks.

The question was about 880's, or 990's. I know exactly what that is. Do you. It doesn't look like a jet airliner to me. Those things spinning are propellers right. No speed fairings. Nope it's definetly not an 880 or 990.

A follow up question. If there are no 880/990's still flying, does anybody know where one can get a look at an abandoned/mothballed one in Texas? Thanks again.

I only post that because you have said without doubts "No sir. No more convairs flying." That is a Convair and is used in commercial flights, like Dfw has asked.
Don't worry, I know that you know what plane is that.

Did you remove the Convair picture from your post? I can't get it to appear on any of my web browsers, and usually I have no problem getting your pictures.

The picture is still there. I didn't do anything. If you want, I can send you the picture by email.

Thanks for the offer, Mirage. It must be a problem with my computer. When I logged in with another user's name and password, the picture came in just fine. When I use my name and password I can't get any pictures. This just started today. Thanks.
