I found this cool trivia test regarding airline logos on the webpage below:

http://home.stlnet.com/~dkeller/nf-tques.htm

My guesses are:

1. Pan Am
2. Bonanza
3. I have no idea - Spirograph Airlines?  
4. Northeast (I think)
5. Eastern, but I'm not sure
6. I have no idea
7. Southern Airways
8. I have no idea
9. Southeast. (I was gonna say National, but it says it's from 1992. The old National was already gone by then. I think it's a trick question.
10. TWA, but I have no idea why it's green.Does nyone know the significance of the green TWA logo?

#10, is it green because of the Ozark takeover? Wasn't Ozarks colors green?

Or maybe perhaps flights to the middle east? (reference to #10)

I do believe that #8 is "Herman" from Republic/North Central.

#6 is Mohawk, Route of the Air Chiefs!

1.) Pan Am
2.) Bonanza
3.) No clue
4.) Allegheny
5.) No clue
6.) Mohawk
7.) Southern
8.) Aloha Airlines; it's the Bird of Paradise (a flower, not a bird), which was continues to grace Aloha's livery (in a slightly different and much more colorful form) today.
9.) Key Air (not Southeast; I don't know if SE even existed in '92, but Key Air (which became a subsidiary of World) had the logo rights at that time.
10.) No clue. It's defnitely not in reference to the Ozark takeover, as that occurred in 1986, and the quiz says that the logo is from '74.

re:Lonestarmike

The only one's I think are diferent from what you suggest is No.6 which I think is Mohawk, No.4 which was definately Allegheny, No.9 I was going to say National Airlines to.. but 1992?, I don't think 5 is Eastern but I don't know what it was.. No 3 is a real mystery but it somehow rings a bell.. Could it have been an old version of Continental??

3. Central Airlines-Caribb was close with his CO answer as it was merged into Frontier and later with PeoplExpress then CO

5. West Coast Airlines

10. TW green logo was on their timetable in 74 for start of new Ireland flights.

N202PA, if Key Air did have the rights to the old National logo (and I believe you), then you're right since Key Air ceased operations in Feb. 1993.

notdownnlocked, I'm impressed. I never would have guessed Central Airlines for #3, but there it is right on the tail.

And here's a link to a 1960's West Coast timetable, so I know you're right about that one too.

When I read everyone else's answer regarding #6, I thought "OK, it's an indian so it must be Mohawk, but now I'm not so sure. I think it might be Western. The had an indian logo back in the 1960's, too.

That is National's logo I believe. SEA's logo has Orange on the Left, and Yellow on the right. However, Key Int'l did use this logo.

Thanks for the compliment LoneStar. Central was based in Ft. Worth,TX and had ordered DC-9's before they were bought. I am curious to the link with the Central photo as they never flew regular flights to San Antonio. Although the Western/Mohawk Indian schemes are somewhat alike, the Indian in the contest is Mohawk. I did also notice that the colors are reversed on the Southeast planes which look not so good. I hope the airline is better than their webpage. Talk about no frills!!!

The logo for #9 is definately the original National Airlines,
However 1992? Were there any feeder airlines that continued to use the livery after the Pan Am take over?
Or could there have been a National Aircraft left in storage somewhere in full livery?

Actually, I e-mailed my guesses to the webmaster of that site last night and this morning I received a reply from him. #6 is definitely Western, he says.

AussieErj145, #9 is a trick question. N202PA had the right answer. Remember, these were logos he scanned from timetables. The old National, as N202PA said, was already gone by then and Southeast didn't get the rights to the logo until 1993.

So the correct answers are:

1. Pan Am
2. Bonanza
3. Central Airlines
4. Allegheny
5. West Coast Airlines
6. Western Airlines
7. Southern Airways
8. Aloha
9. Key Air
10. Green to commemorate TWAs inauguration of flights to Ireland.

Just the fact that I had so much fun playing this game tells me I should really get a life.

I guess it is WA. I was looking at a schedule for Mohawk from 1965 and they are very similar. It almost looks as though the same person/ad agency designed both. The feathers on the Mohawk Indian point downward below the ears as opposed to WA's whose feathers point rearward. The Key Airlines "Sun King" logo was reborn when Key started their scheduled flights from their hub in SAV in 1991 or 1992. They also used the "correct" color scheme as opposed to Southeast.
