New photos part eight



Hello again! Just to throw you off, I'm adding a couple of 'new' Convair 580 photos tonight, which were also provided by Dave DeBace for our viewing pleasure. Many more DC-3's on the way in future postings though! Enjoy...:)

Aircraft show are #509 and #542

I don't think NC flew the Convair to Kansas City. I don't think NC flew there at all, maybe right before the merger but not with the 580??

Yes they flew to MCI. I will dig up the date they started. We still had CV440 when we started going in there.

Here we go. The route was awarded in Sept. or Oct. 1967. Its on the front page of the Oct issue of the Northliner. Service began in Dec. 1967. Per the Nov. issue of the Northliner.

I stand corrected looks like there were three flights a day, two Convairs and one DC-9 to MCI.
