Seen here in storage, this Convair went on the following year to fly with DHL in Europe as OO-DHJ. It was however lost in a crash on 1 September 2008 as N587X with Air Tahoma. It was on a post-maintenance flight and crashed immediately after departure from Rickenbacker Airport. The crew had declared an in-flight emergency and were attempting to return to land. All three crew died in the crash. An NTSB report blamed elevator trim cables reversed during maintenance as the cause of the crash.
