Civilian J-79 Turbojets....as used on the F-104 Starfighter....made this baby wicked fast. I wonder if anyone ever barrel-rolled one for grins?

The Convair 990 always looked a fast jetliner ! Great photo !

A visitor from United States posted Sun March 15, 2009:
The astrojet designation was so cool, the sheer imagination and style of early 60's airline culture is so missed. a dream world past.

This is a great picture, although I wish it could have been full view of the CV990. It takes one back to the golden age of the airlines.
