    Did you know, Varig didn't want the 990! When Varig bought Panair, they where forced to take it. Convair even flew a 990 down to Rio, loaded it with sand bags just to prove to the Varig lawyers that it can perform within the standards that Varig required. So Varig operated three in total from 63 to 71 I believe.

    That´s right! As a side note VARIG operated the Convair, DC-8 and 707 at the same time.

    Small correction, the 990 order was inherited when Varig absorbed Real Aerovias. The DC-8s are the ones that came from Panair
