Photo Comment

Originally a Convair 440 with National Airlines as N2043 in 1956, this Convair was bought by Allegheny Airlines in 1962. Converted by the airline to a Convair 580 in 1966, Aspen Airways leased it in December 1977 and bought it in June 1978. Final flight for the airliner was February 2, 1988 when it hit a snow bank on landing at Durango, CO. No one was injured, but the airplane was damaged enough to be written off.
