"St. Gallen". According to what I managed to figure, HB-ICC is registered as ship No.12, but actually is ship No.38. The original ship No.12 was stress-tested to destruction (like, seeing how far the fuselage can bend before buckling). Ship No.38 became No.12 apparently so that there was no gap in the production list. This would make HB-ICC the last CV-990 airframe, and therefore the last Convair jet airliner, even though it is not the last one delivered.
