Following are all the arrivals at FLL, MCO and ORL shown in the 5/62 North Amer QR OAG.

FLL first:

0410 NE DC6B SaSu only BOS-IDL-FLL-MIA

0845 MK DC6 TPA-PBI-FLL-NAS

0845 MK DC4 MIA-FLL-PBI-WTD-MSH-HBI

0935 Bahamas Airways Visc MIA-FLL-NAS

1237 EA 720 IDL-FLL

1406 EA DC7B MSP-MKE-ORD-CVG-FLL-MIA

1414 NW Elec MKE-ORD-PIE-FLL-MIA

1930 MK D4 MIA-FLL

2048 NW Elec MSP-ORD-ATL-TPA-FLL-MIA

(Note that FLL had a nonstop from DCA-- that was dropped in later years, so when the perimeter rule started in 1966 FLL was locked out until circa 1981. Ditto MSY and MKC/MCI.)


MCO--

0723 EA 720 MIA-MCO-JAX-ATL-ORD (the OAG shows all EA flights at ORL, but I assume that's wrong)

0832 EA 720 TPA-MCO-IDL-YUL

1436 DL 880 ATL-MCO

1618 DL 880 SAN-LAX-DAL-MCO-ATL

1937 EA 720 BOS-IDL-MCO-TPA

Interesting, ORL was so much busier than MCO with only propliners

Would be nice to see some photos from that time

Where is WTD, MSH (Marsh Harbour, maybe?!?) and HBI?

Wow cool thanks for posting that.

I am trying to picture all of those propliners departing from ORL right now.

How fascinating to see how air traffic has changed over the years! MCO and ORL are similar to TPA and PIE. I'm still amazed that there was so much of the same types of commercial air service in and out of both TPA and PIE over the years. Now, PIE has a niche market and does well with it. At least they haven't lost service all together.

Would you be able to post what service we had over here in the Tampa Bay area? The oldest OAG that I have was from the mid 1980s and I was always surprised to see that they had 3 airports listed under Tampa/St. Petersburg/Clearwater-TPA, PIE and SPG. SPG is Albert Whitted field in downtown St. Petersburg. The fact that it's even listed seems to indicate that there might have been commercial service there once-upon-a-time. Is there anything listed?

That NA L-188 from BOS to SFO would be a great way to while away a day sightseeing out of a large window and enjoying NA's wonderful service.

Give me some city pairs. Mid/late '50's or early '60's?

Alot of stuff to The Bahamas, especially compared to now, a sign of the times I suppose.

WTD = West End, MSH = Marsh Harbour, HBI = Harbour Island

I'll get to that in a couple days.

SPG is Albert Whitted field in downtown St. Petersburg.

I'm no expert on Florida, but I'm guessing Whitted never had scheduled airlines. It's not in the 1962, and I don't remember it in any others.

There were one or two more FLL flights -- NW Electras that originated in MIA and weren't shown among the FLL arrivals (meaning NW wasn't allowed to ticket passengers MIA-FLL?). One went all the way to Edmonton, four days a week.

Yes they did.
That short flight across town , as it were, was fun and scenic. It was a rare trip that anyone even bothered to raise the gear.
On the northbound leg (Flight 703),the stop at FLL was brief and usually #4 was kept turning.
There was almost always a pretty good load going over to TPA and the leg between TPA and ATL served a great luncheon and was usually full.
