This Convairliner began as a 340 delivered to Aeronaves de Mexico as XA-KOU "Cuidad de Tijuana" in February 1954. In January 1960, Lynjeflyg bought all four of Aeronaves de Mexico's Convairs with SE-CRO delivered in March 1960 and converted to 440 standard. Withdrawn in May 1978, it's pictured en route to the USA to become N28DR for Air Go Air Freight. Flying with Combs Freightair and Kitty Hawk Aircargo after 1980 , the aircraft was sold to Aircraft Leasing in March 1991 after sitting without engines in Fort Worth, TX for a year. It was later later broken up.
