Shows a rare aircraft in full action. Contrast of backgroung (snow) and red color scheme is very nice.

Very nice photo of this classic and rare airliner, only 37 built. The Convair 990 always looked fast, even on the ground.

What a great shot: it's a hot rod from the '60s: fast, noisy and smoking without apology!
