Description=The Convair 580 was a modification of the existing CV340 and 440 airframes. The 501-D13H engine (same engine as C-130) was flat rated at 3750 shp and max rated at 4000shp. The normal operating power was limited to 3500 as not to over stress the gearbox. This 50 passenger airliner has had a long carrier and can still be found in fright service today.\n Repaint by:Joe DeGregorio 11-2007.

As always. Enjoy!
