I concur with the above ^ ^ assessment.   :)

However, did you ever notice the similarity between the Martin and Convair aircraft of this time and size?  (ie Martin 404 and Convair 580)  Wonder if there was some corporate James Bond stuff going on.

I never thought of that till you said something Marty. But you are absolutely correct. Hmmm...
