Default Pineapple: The Hawaii Express

Making money flying to Hawaii has always been more difficult than it seems. The Hawaii Express was one of many valiant attempts to make it work and certainly one of the more colourful ones. The latest blog entry covers their history:

by coincidence I just got one of these in, it seems to come with a little tug. Quite nice.

I'm a Dragon Wings/Jet-X fanboy for sure, but maybe this DC-10-10 Hawaiian Express carried the the evolving color cheatline one step too far - the tail is radiant yellow rather than the mango orange it might have been. Picky, picky, picky, Doug
