This beautiful old Convair on short final to runway 1R used to be used by the immigration service to transport illegal immigrants, despite it not having windows

The photo is a Convair probably on final approach. The mountain in the background shows the aircraft's relative height above the ground, which makes for a dynamic composition.

Don't often see many Convair 580s about. This shot displays the type beautifully.

This is a classic pic of a 580 in the most appealing livery that really suits the graceful and classic lines of the aircraft. The designer of he Spitfire once said, if an aircraft looks good it will fly well.
