Today I was looking through a book and I found an airline called Hughes Airwest. I also saw some photos of Hughes Airwest on Airliners.net. If you have flown Hughes Airwest what type of aircraft was it? When did they stop flying?

I never flew them but they stopped flying around 1980 when they were purchased by Republic and briefly renamed Republic West. Then they simply became Republic. Northwest purchased Republic in 1986.
