What's not to like? considering the year of the photo still looks great.and any true aviation buff from the early jet years(me!) has to admit the 990 had no equal in speed,beauty,and awesome looks.todays jets with they're plastic generic all look the same is really boooring!!!!

The beautiful cv-990 coronado: noisy, smoky but
classy lookin, just like the boeing 720.

One month later this aircraft had a mid-air collision with Iberia DC-9 EC-BII at cruising altitude over Nantes, France. The Convair made an emergency landing at a military airbase with 18 feet of wing missing, while the DC-9 crashed killing all 68 aboard. The Convair re-entered service after repairs.
