Hi!

The fastest subsonic airliner was the CV990!!! It was called by Cap. Rudolfo "Rudy" Bay from Spantax, a huge CV990 operator, "The Maserati of the Skies"!!!
That bird could fly the maximum speed of 990 Kph at 22.000 ft. I think the next one was the Boeing 720 that could fly at 972 Kph.
Regards
CV990, the Maserati of the skies!

The 757. Seeing how I was on one yesterday, I forgot how overpowering the engines were for that plane....  bigthumbsup

Don't forget the little hot rod of the 60's...the Convair 880.
