Reminds me more of the P-1 Japanese maritime patrol aircraft.

 

Convair's aircraft interest me - the 990 more so than the 880. The former was very fast, more similar to the VC-10 than the plodding Boeing types.

Yeah, I gather one Convair model in particular (I cant remember if it was the 880 or the 990) so worried Boeing they reputedly built the Boeing 720, a kind of high mach, low seat 707 to queer their pitch. It worked, even though they never built that many.

Not related to the 737MAX but related to aviation safety in general:
