Super Convair Turns 60

Post by n33d4sp33d_85 » Sun Jan 19, 2020 6:02 pm

On this date in 1960, Convair's CV-580 'Super Convair' flew for the first time. These converted recip-powered CV-340 and CV-440s were powered by Allison 501 turboprop powerplants and were seen in Frontier, North Central, Allegheny, and more colors for many years. They're still used as firebombers.
