Remark Photographer
OH-VKM (cn 432) Finnair photo. Uploaded with permission.This is one of several photos received from Finnair. They were disposing of old photos and I was asked if I want them.Otherwise they would go to the waste bin. How could I turn down an offer like that? I was also told that that I could publish them as long as it was mentioned that they originate from Finnair

The watermark over the wing ruins it all. I am sure this is not what finnair had in mind.

Picture simply breathing 'the fifties' with such colors! Just wondering, does that nose looks longer than normal on a 440?

A visitor from Finland posted Tue October 19, 2010:
Perfect! In every possible way. The Convair photographer has been a real pro.

A visitor from Canada posted Tue January 5, 2010:
5* for the spotless aircraft.

What a clean, sleek design. Those long, slim wings, look at those beautiful nacelles, tipically Convair, great.

Think this is great because of the depth of the picture and it is a relaxing picture a person could enjoy having on their wall and be able just to sit and think while looking at it.
