Default Mystery Vintage Airline Logo

I'm hoping someone here may recognize the logo on these old Pilot Wings.

My first thought was Western Airlines - but the logo does not seem to match. They are made by Scully of Montreal and are from the 1950's or 60's.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I reckon it may be Wheeler Airlines.

I think you may be right Graham, just found this image and the W A looks remarkably similar.

The arrow logo kind of nails it I think.

Hope you're happy with that SKYTHINGS.

If those are Wheeler airline wings and you ever want to sell them I would be interested. My Dad worked for them in the late 1950's.
