CONVAIR CV-580 (XA-UMI)

Enviado

This Convair 340 was originally delivered to Braniff Airways in 1953. Amazing to see it still in regularly scheduled service with Aeronaves TSM. This bird was retrofitted with Rolls Royce Dart Turboprops and is now classified as a CV-640. Thanks to George Maidens for pointing this out in the comments!! A true treat to see as I had never photographed an active airborne former Braniff aircraft! (Please view in "Full" for best image quality)

This is actually a Convair 640, fitted with RR Dart engines. Very rare indeed!

You're absolutely correct George! She has been retrofitted with the Darts, good catch

Are my old eyes deceiving me , one person only in cockpit ?

Hi Peter- I checked the other photos I got of this bird's approach and it is a 2 person crew. The angle on this shot makes it look like a single man crew

My first commercial flight was on Allegheny Airlines Convair 580 in 1968.

clearly even in this picture it is a two person crew or this guy has a phenomenal double chin - great photo

I bought $3,000 of Braniff Airways stock in the 1980's. Lost it all. How to lose money fast. Fool around with airline stock.

For other Convair examples, Google "Corrosion Corner".

Enjoyed many flights between Kodiak and Anchorage on Era Aviation's Convair 580. Very roomy, comfortable seating.
