American Airlines 990 Astrojet 1 of 20 (out of a total of 37 Convair 990's built)

621 mph (540 kts, 1,000 km/h) at 21,200 ft Interesting side note; Convair at the end run of the Convair 880/990
production - was the most money ever lost by a corporation that still remained in business - ouch!!! But fast!!
