I read the caption, and found it very interesting.
Jan Mogren, you was right, that Convair is still here.
It is placed at Sola Flymuseum.
Probably hard to see, but if you check out this picture:

On the right hand side of the runway, there in the green hangar, there the museum is placed.
And guess what plane I was taking pictures of 4 weeks ago? Yeah you guessed it  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Wow! That's what I call service! Thanks Øystein for showing those shots.
So that is where she lives now? I trust you are taking good care of my darling  Wink/being sarcastic
Still looking good?

When I was at Sola it was an old cozy terminal. I remember a postcard showing it, but can't find it. Is that old postcard still being sold there?

I'm very happy to have flown as a passenger on board her in 1986.
On a round trip from Stockholm-Bromma on an open air day.

Thanks Jan! Just a pleasure to help you out  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Yeah she is still looking very good, stored in the hangar.
Looks she is in almost operational conditions.

don't know about that postcard though, I'll check it out next time.
But the terminal is probably in the same conditions, not much happening with Sola Lufthavn over the years...

here's some more pictures of the bird:
(sorry for the lousy quality, I'm quite embarrassed..)

If you have any requests I can take some more pictures later.


Cheers
