Photo Comment

Originally PP-VGJ with Varig from 1963, this Convair 990 would go to Modern Air Transport in June 1971. Bought by Denver Ports of Call travel club in June 1975, the club would fly a total of six 990s before changing over to Boeing 707. This particular 990 was withdrawn in the early 80s at Marana, AZ and broken up there in May 1986.
