I have been adding images from my slide collection in the past couple of weeks. A few favorites:
Pinehurst Airlines YS-11 N112PH at Atlanta in 1981. Beautiful!
Southeastern Commuter Airlines Riley Dove N808RH at Atlanta circa 1982.
Atlantic Gulf Airlines Vickers Viscount N140RA at St. Petersburg circa 1983-84.
The "timetable a day" continues. Here are some of the recent additions to the website.
Dolphin Airlines - May 1, 1983
Executive Airlines - October 26, 1969
Pinehurst Airlines (4 timetables)
Phoenix Airlines - April 8, 1980
Shawnee Airlines (3 timetables)
Southeastern Commuter Airlines (7 timetables)
Sunbird Airlines - April 1, 1985
Many of these timetables are filled with great aircraft photos, route maps, vintage terminal diagrams and advertisements in addition to the flight schedules. These are a few highlights. The photos link to the corresponding pages.
Shawnee Airlines fleet overview from the February 1, 1972 timetable.
Pinehurst Airlines - 1960s airplanes, 1980s hair!
An ATL terminal map from the August 14, 1981 Pinehurst timetable showing the original layout with 4 1/2 concourses.
A wonderful air-to-air photo of Phoenix Airlines' de Havilland DH-114 Heron, an odd and beautiful 4-engine beast.
Route map hidden away in the back of a Dolphin Airlines timetable from May 1, 1983 showing the airline at its peak. The airline began to rapidly downsize after this and went out of business eight months later in January 1984.
And finally, from the same Dolphin timetable, something you're unlikely to ever see published by an airline again.
