Added 11 new images to the History of Airline Service at Vero Beach page, ranging from a 1930s postcard of an Eastern Airlines DC-2 and 1940s images from the LIFE archives to various commuter airlines that served the airport in the 1970s through 1990s. You can see all of them HERE.
One of the great joys of having this website is learning about long-forgotten airlines such as this one. Mid-South Airways brought airline service to off-the-beaten-path towns such as Sandersville, Swainsboro, and Vidalia, Georgia. Timetable scans are from the amazing collection Don Henchel, a man who has some of the rarest and most obscure airline timetables I've seen.
Panama Aviation, operating as Panama Airways, flew Piper Navajos on routes from Panama City, Florida during 1990-1991. Thanks to Don Henchel for bringing this little-known airline to my attention.
Here's an obscure airline that lasted a total of 9 months. South Central Airlines operated a fleet of Beech 18s across Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas beginning in October 1963 but a fatal crash in February 1964 doomed the airline and all flights ceased on July 1, 1964.
