Back around 1986 or so, I took a flight from San Deigo to Houston Hobbie through LAX on an airline that had the most beautiful paint scheme I've ever seen. This airline, owned by Southwest, was called "Transtar Airlines". If I'm not mistaken, Southwest bought out MuseAir, and basically repainted their planes and tried an experiment with making a more luxurious airline to go along with their "no-frills" airline. The Transtar fleet was comprised completely of DC-9 50's and MD-80's. They were painted completely in a purple color called "Empirium Blue", with flourescent pinstipes around the tail section. Unfortunately, this great airline survived for only about a year, and I have never been able to find a photo. If anyone has a Transtar photo, I would be greatly appreciative if you could send it to me. Thank-you for your time.
