Thanks Tom, found the data I needed for PE. I've also found the infor on the Commutair change-ver from US to CO (12/2/2000). If anyone has an old timetable for 2001, I need the date that Commutair resumed service to PVD (to ALB?) as a CO Connection carrier...
I'd also like to add Ransome Airlines, Henson Aviation, Pennsylvania Commuter, Pocono Airlines, and Metro Airlines Northeast to the list of airlines I need history on.

The Mohawk merger was not a pretty sight. Bob Peach Sr. was very distraught over lossing Mohawk to Allegheny. He commited suicide over it. His sons in the late 80's were able to aquire the name back from USAir and made a poor attempt at running an airline form UCA and later SYR. Mohawk (II) ceased 9/93 due to IRS problems.

From "Commuter Airlines of the US" by REG Davies and IE Quastler:
p295 "When, in June 1982, he had parted company with USAir and transferred Ransome's reservations to Delta, he had already initiated preliminary discussions with Dave Garrett, soon to become Delta's president. In May 1984, Dawson consummated the new association by announcing that Ransome Airlines had become part of The Delta Connection..."
same page "Pilgrim Airlines, from New London/Groton, founded in the early 1960s by old-timer Joe Fugere, had absorbed NewAir, and was itself engulfed by Business Express, a newcomer from Hartford that had been founded only in November 1984..."
In the back it says Business Exp bought Pilgrim on 28 Feb 1986.
There's more, of course. You probably need the book.
