Schreiber-Bogen Card Modelling Convair 440 "Metropolitan"
In 1954, in an attempt to compete with turboprob-powered airliners like the Vickers Viscount, Convair produced the Model 440 Metropolitan, with more streamlined cowlings, new engine exhausts and better soundproofing for the cabin. As the "Super 240" evolved into the CV-340 and CV-440, the limit of piston-engine performance was reached, and future development centered on the conversion to turboprop power.
