CV880 C/N 35 EX TWA

Also cockpit of CV880 C/N 3 and forward fuselage and nose of c/n 23.

I believe is the also current the owner of the 880/990 type certificates. Other than the Swissair 990 in Basel and the forward fuselage/cockpit of 880 C/N 1 at the Delta Museum in ATL, what other Convair jetliners are preserved on public display?

Elvis's CV880 the Lisa Marie at Graceland. There is also the former NASA/AA CV990 out front of the MHV Airport.

Thanks, how could I forget about Graceland? The NASA gate gate was unknown to me, though.

Did the article say why he was selling them?

He owned a load of Convair 880s at one stage before scrapping them all.
I do enjoy a spot of flying, especially when it's not in economy!

There is a former Spantax Coronado hulk, now used as a cabin trainer at Sabadell (LELL / QSA) in Spain - link attached.

There is a museum in New Jersey that has the forward section of one of the TWA CV-880s that was stored at ACY.

Just for records, the Swissair CV990 is on display in Luzerne, not Basel.

Years ago, there used to be a CV990 just outside LIS, near the road into the City. Whatever happened to that one?
