What a great shot: it's a hot rod from the '60s: fast, noisy and smoking without apology!

Very nice photo of this classic and rare airliner, only 37 built. The Convair 990 always looked fast, even on the ground.

A visitor from Austria posted Fri September 26, 2008:
Shows a rare aircraft in full action. Contrast of backgroung (snow) and red color scheme is very nice.

A visitor from Greece posted Sat June 10, 2006:

A visitor from Sweden posted Thu May 11, 2006:
Never knew that enviromental abuse could be that beautiful.

Can see the aircraft at its most vulnerable yet powerfull position - raw brute force.
