About this title

Synopsis:

Founded by Reuben H. Fleet in 1923, Consolidated Aircraft Corporation (later Convair) became one of the most significant aircraft manufacturers in American history. For roughly 60 years, this prolific company was synonymous with San Diego. In fact, whole sections of the city were designed to provide homes for the Convair workers and their families. These men and women were responsible for building some of the most significant aircraft in aviation history, including the PBY Catalina, B-24 Liberator, F-102 Delta Dagger, as well as the reliable Atlas missile, which was vital in launching America into space. To this day, more than a decade after the company passed from the San Diego scene, tens of thousands of San Diegans still celebrate a seminal connection with Reuben Fleet, his company, and his popular slogan, “Nothing short of right is right.”

About the Author:

For more than 40 years, the San Diego Air and Space Museum has preserved the nation’s aerospace history and technology. In this unique publication, head archivist Katrina Pescador and historian Mark Aldrich selected photographs from the museum’s extensive collection to highlight the story of this major aircraft company and the people who contributed to its success.
