This gorgeous Convair CV-440 served with both Alitalia as I-DOGI and Finnair as OH-LRG from 1953 - 1980. She then headed to the USA and Cosmopolitan Airlines, based at Farmingdale. I believe that they briefly operated four similar Convairs, and re-branded as Coastal Airlines Express in 1983. She soldiered on with other operators until the mid 1990's, and ended her days at the Air Museum Chino, CA. Scanned from a Kodachrome 64 slide.
