Once Upon A Time
Once upon a time, not so many years ago, there were dozens of viable airline companies in the USA. But after airline deregulation in the late 70’s a long slow wave of mergers and acquisitions led to our current state of a few, generally-struggling behemoths. Meanwhile, Piedmont was one of the first airlines I remember, a primary server to Charleston, WV, where I spent the first decade of my life. This DC-3 (a bit before my time, though I did ride a really old one in the late 60’s) was at the air show this weekend. What airlines do you remember/miss?? Ozark and Allegheny? Or even biggies like PanAm, Eastern, and TWA… Oh well, I got a kick out of seeing the Piedmont colors again….
