N5607 was delivered to American Airlines on February 9, 1962. In 1967, it was sold to Modern Air Transport, and flew as N5624. In 1975, it was purchased by Nomads and flew as N990E. It was finally scrapped in 1991. Photo taken by my great uncle and scanned from a slide. Thanks to David Lednicer for retouching the old slide.

The sleek Convair 990, the fastest airliner of the first jet generation, and a very rare aircraft, only 37 built. Beautiful photo, good old times !
