A â€‹**countdown numberâ€‹** is a positive integer where the sum of each pair of consecutive digits forms part of a countdown. For example: 23120 is a countdown number because

\[\begin{align*} &\boxed{2, 3}, 1, 2, 0 \longrightarrow 2 + 3 = \mathbf{5} \\ &2, \boxed{3, 1}, 2, 0 \longrightarrow 3 + 1 = \mathbf{4} \\ &2, 3, \boxed{1, 2}, 0 \longrightarrow 1 + 2 = \mathbf{3} \\ &2, 3, 1, \boxed{2, 0} \longrightarrow 2 + 3 = \mathbf{2} \\ \end{align*}\]

What is the largest seven digit countdown number that doesn't use a digit more than once?
