Boeing was raking in the dough with the 707 jet airliner. But the competitors wanted to prove they can do better at something or other... Convair was one of them. The Convair 990 Coronado was designed to fly significantly faster than the biggest players in the new jet field (the 707 and Douglas’s truck-like DC-8). While Convair succeeded in achieving a higher cruise speed, they failed to rake in the profits. This graphic art showcases the unusual engine and cowl design of the 990, its unusual design due to the bypass fan being placed in the rear.

Artist's comment: The 990's engine had very little detail compared to the other Throttle Collection art. So, I made up for the immense time saved by focusing more effort on color palette. While I could have gone for a very colorful look, I wanted to choose something a bit on the somber side. Convair was so determined to show that they can fly faster, it seems they failed to focus on the business side of their product a little too much. I wonder how successful they could have been if they focused more on market demand than proving something.
