Does anyone have any info about historical air service to Concord, NH (KCON)? According to Wikipedia, Northeast Airlines served it, but doesn't indicate when, where to/from, or with what type of equipment. Also, has there been more recent air service to KCON?

Quoting Jmc1975 (Thread starter):

Going all the way back to 1961, Northeast had one daily multi-stop DC-3 from BOS that served Concord. It operated Boston-Lawrence-Concord-Laconia-Berlin and back with the same stops. You'll find those flights in the April 30, 1961 Northeast timetable below on pages 4 and 6. Flight number 345 southbound, 344 northbound.

In their June 1, 1969 timetable, Concord service no longer exists but they list their flights to MHT as "Manchester-Concord".

The November 15, 1979 OAG (from the Departedflights.com site) shows one daily (except Sat/Sun) flight from Concord to Boston on a Precision Airlines Piper Navajo.

Precision was a commuter airline based in Springfield, VT and in 1981 they had a fleet of 6 Piper Navajos, 4 Twin Otters, 6 Beech 18s, and 1 Cessna 310.

There's no Concord-BOS service listed in any later OAGs covering a few dates in the 1980s/90s in the Departedflights site.

As best I can recall, the Precision flight to Concord in 1979 was a brief, subsidized effort to restore air service. My family traveled a couple of times per year between Milwaukee and Concord for several years back in that era, and only once was there a flight into Concord available. I think it ran six months, and if I recall correctly it was the first scheduled service there in quite a few years.
