The Convair 990 Coronado is a jet airliner manufactured by Convair.
In 1961, the first 990 Coronado entered production. The 990 was considered the fastest passenger jet since it was built with a speed of about Mach 0.91. There were original plans to use the bulges of the 990 Coronados as fuel tanks. In 1963, there were only 37 990s produced.
The 990 Coronado has a crew of three and has a seating capacity of 96 to 121 passengers. It has a maximum speed of 534 knots and a range of 4,700 nm. The primary user of the 990 Coronado was the American Airlines. There were several 990s which survived. A former Swissair Convair is currently on display at the Swiss transportation museum in Verkehrshaus, Luzem, while two 990s are owned by the Mojave Spaceport. Of these, one 990 is on display at the airport's entrance and the other is used for movie and television filming projects.
