Default Air West Pt1: The Airline That Had to Happen

Bonanza flew to Yuma back in 60's with the F-27.,later it was Airwest and than Hughes Airwest . All kept Yuma on the map. The only plane that I don't have is the DC-9-30.

So this is the other forum.........

Know an Air West guy, ex Pacific. Got some goodies of Pacific way back then! One of them is a print of a Navajo, B721, F-27, and DC-9 with all different tails.

An SFO oldie from my collection:
