Cathay transitioned into the jet age when the Convair 880s joined the fleet. Two new birds were purchased from Convair to replace the Lockheed Electras. The airline subsiquently operated a fleet of eight CV-880s. Two were lost - one ran off runway-13 after a nose tire blew during take-off; the other one exploded by a bomb over central Vietnam while enroute BKK/HKG.
