I recall flying on Cochise many years ago. Horribly rough flight. White-knuckle time for me, I can tell ya!!
But we did have bad weather around Flagstaff.

Anybody else familiar with this airline?

From the info I can find on-line, it appears the airline operated from 1972-1980.

Take a look at these old collector's items (anybody got these timetables?) .....................

I remember they used to fly into Prescott about the time they ended service. I believe their fleet consisted of Cessna 402s, Metroliners, and Convair 440s.

This is at their TUS hangar... it appears to be on the NE quadrant of the airport... north of the terminal, but certainly south of the ANG ramp and RWY 3/21

Awfully long ride in a Metro to LAX... hope they didn't start in PHX or TUS.
