Must be the sexiest jetliner ever, bar Concorde. My good friend Steve Piercey, the Propliner guru who would never normally look at jets, used to refer to the CV-990 as an honorary propliner

Lovely, crisp takeoff shot. I love your quote of Stephen Piercey, referring to the Coronado as an "honorary propliner." I flew one of these from Bombay to Zurich - I still remember that flight after so many years!
