Convair 880 Rollout And Test Flights

Sun Dec 16, 2001 1:00 am

Never yet found any photos of the 880 or 990 for that matter at rollout at the old Convair plant in San Diego. Also would be nice to see photos of the 880 in house colors. Anyone?

Thanks, ILS. Can you believe the livery on the 880?! No wonder they didn't sell too many of them!
