    Default A bit of interesting information.

    This interested me because I worked for the “Original Frontier” for 23+ years, and worked this aircraft a lot.

    I didn't know Honeywell made aircraft. Thought it was just FMCs and other stuff.

    I thought Convair was a separate company? My parents had a Honeywell central heating thermostat in their house for years...

    I thought Convair was a separate company?
    From Wikipedia:
    Convair, previously Consolidated Vultee, was an American aircraft manufacturing company that later expanded into rockets and spacecraft. The company was formed in 1943 by the merger of Consolidated Aircraft and Vultee Aircraft. In 1953 it was purchased by General Dynamics, and operated as their Convair Division for most of its corporate history.

    It is a Convair 580 owned by Honeywell and, according to the article, used by them to test avionics innovations, etc.
