CV-990 Coronado American AirlinesItem Number: 1415
Convair CV-990 Coronado airplane model. The first Convair 990, also called the Coronado, made its first flight on January 24, 1961. Though the 990 was a good performer aerodynamically, it was not well-conceived in terms of payload, operator options, and cabin customer appeal. The Convair's 880 and 990 program proved an extremely costly venture for the company, and since that time the aviation divisions of General Dynamics Corporation have confined their activities within the field of military aviation.
