The Bozeman, Montana airport has a tribute to Northwest Airlines on the homepage of their website. Interesting to see some of the historical pictures.

Thank you for sharing this with us.

It was really nice to see so many historical pictures. I especially liked the pictures of DC-10s at BZN - it looks like the DC-10 was almost as big as the terminal!

I flew to BZN on the original Frontier and can remember deplaning late at night via the airstairs and seeing the massive DC10 sitting next to us. It was sometime in the early 80's right after the new terminal was built. I was about 10 at the time and thought it was the coolest airport I had ever been to. Fortunately, many years later, I had the chance to work at FCA, which is also a very cool airport.

Nice tribute! So what's the story with the DC-10? Was it a normal visitor to BZN? When? Was it just a MSP turn?

Back in the day I believe It was part of a milk run. If I'm not mistaken it went ORD MSP BIL BZN GEG SEA, or something like that. Anybody else have any other insight?

Very cool pictures. I knew that Northwest flew the DC10 to Billings and Great Falls in the 1970s, but didn't realize they sent it to Bozeman as well.

That's a great tribute to a great airlline. Good job to whoever at BZN who put that on their website. I wish the people at my home airport could do good work like that. Well done.


Bring back Western Airlines!

The DC-10 routing was normally ORD - BIL - GTF - GEG - SEA. In Billings and Spokane, they cross-connected with two other planes that had a routing of MSP - BIS - BIL - HLN - MSO - GEG - PDX and MSP - BIL - BZN - BTM - GEG which were both 727s. (Sometimes this routing varried but the DC-10 was always on the the route with BIL and GTF. (When NW was on strike and operated minimial flights, they actually operated 747s into BIL and GTF.)

BZN wasn't a normal station for the DC10s but because at the time NW only had 747s, DC10s and 727s, if there was a cancellation, NW would sometimes do speical stops with the 10's into airports like BZN.
