Air California started with Electras in ... 1968, was it? Now somebody in the other thread says there's a pic of a 737-159 in Air California paint in 1968. How long did they fly Electras (originally, that is-- not the TVL flights later)? When did they start DC-9s and when 737s?

They started in 1967 with Electras and quickly moved to 737's in 1968. I don't recall the Electras staying on non-TVL flights, except to open up OAK-SNA. SFO-SNA was all jet within 1968. Anyone else remember the original livery with the black nose?
