Is actually a CV-340-67. Wears "California" on tail. Seen rolling runway 25L back to FAT. Assigned to 144 FIS at Fresno ANG, based in California. Built in 1955. Ex N8455H. Preserved at McClellan AFB Museum near Sacramento, California. It was surprising how many commercial & military Convair twins came thru SAN - maybe because it's their birth place?
