Looking through my old OAG's, it amazing to see the large planes is smaller cities where there are no longer many widebodies.

Examples:

TW L1011 DAY-STL

UA DC10 OMA-DEN

TW L1011 Freeport-JFK

AA/ UA DC10 BDL-ORD

DL L1011 BDL-BOS/ATL (yes, I know DL still has 767's into BDL)

WA DC10 GRF-SLC

DL also used to run L1011's BDL-BOS-BDA.

Prosa, yes, the L10 BDL-BOS continued to BDA!

EA also has L10's BDL-EWR

I believe BIL used to get NW DC-10s.

They still get occasional UPS 767-300s when a 757 is outta service... Closest to scheduled widebody nowadays for passenger is UA 757s on saturday nights/sunday mornings to DEN. Also, NW 747s do touch and goes occasionally....

Didn't COS get the UA D10s a long time ago?

I believe BUF, ROC, and possibly SYR had widebodies back then.

Albuquerque used to get 767-200s and L-1011s with TWA from St. Louis.

PSE used to get the Carnival A300's and after they were bought out by PA 2- they also sent in their A300's to JFK and EWR. As of now PSE is only served by Cessna 402's of Cape Air.

Lowfareair,

COS used to get United DC-10s just about 3 years ago.

Sadly, seeing a widebody in a small city wasn't unusual in the past. Nearly all cities in the US used to recieve widebodies at one time or another.

Oh those were the good days.........

Regards

Daily DC-10 service vs. 6 a day RJ service. Sure the daily DC-10 would be great, but the 6 frequencies make much more sense from an economic standpoint.

TWA used to send L-1011's and 767's in Columbus. I believe that stopped sometime in the mid 80's. Eastern Airlines also used to fly A300's into CMH.

Oh yes Serge, BIL had daily NW DC-10 service in the 70s. My mind is a bit foggy but I think the routing was MSP-BIL-BUT-GEG-SEA and reverse. So add BUT (Butte Montana) and GEG (Spokane) to the list.

I'll add PSP (AA DC-10), TUS (AA DC-10 and 767) and DAB (EA L-1011 and LT MD-11) to the list.

AA DFW-AUS-DFW.

And that was into the old Austin (Meuller) airport, not Bergstrom.

Quite a lot of plane for the size field, and most unexpected for a 200-mile flight.



...three miles from BRONS, clear for the ILS one five approach...

Anyone know if GRR or TVC used to get anything like that? I don't know too much about their histories and am interested.

IMissPiedmont:

Wow, so much for a "direct" flight Big grin. That musta been pretty cool....

All I could remember is that I saw a photo in a part of the terminal in Billings, I wasn't even close to being around back then..

Heres a list of what Billings currently receives just because I'm bored:

Passenger
United to DEN: A320, 757, 737-300/500 (switches off a lot)
United Express/AWAC to DEN: BAe 146
Northwest to MSP: DC-9-30 (there used to be nonstop DC-9 service to GTF and FCA but it was cut shortly after 9-11  Sad)
Horizon to SEA: Fokker F-28-4000 (soon to be CRJ-700 in December)
America West Express to PHX (beginning 10-27-02): CRJ-200
Delta Airlines to SLC: MD-90-30
Delta Connection/Skywest to SLC: CRJ-200
Big Sky HUB: Metro IIIs and 23s

Cargo:
Fedex to GTF: Fokker F-27
Great Lakes Airlines Cargo to DEN, MSO: B1900C and B1900D
UPS to DEN and SDF: 757-200 (occasional 767-300)

Theres lots of cargo stuff I missed like Ameriflight, Corporate Air, Alpine Aviation, etc... as well as occasional scheduled charters such as: Sun Country 737-800, Casino Express 737-200, Sierra Pacific 737-200, Allegiant Air MD-87s.......

Can anyone with an older issue of OAG find out what used to fly to Wichita(ICT)? Definitely no widebodies, but probably some larger narrowbodies like the 727s.

Dont forget Delta use to fly 767's and L1011's from BDL to Florida cities before Delta express. Also, UA in the early 70's flew 741's into BDL to ORD, and all the Eastern widebodies BDL use to get. A300's to MIA and L1011's to BOS and MIA i think.

I stand to be corrected if this information is incorrect, but a few years ago when living in Albuquerque, the only widebody service was TWA L-1011 service STL-ABQ-STL. Unless new widebody service has been introduced, which I greatly doubt, that airport no longer sees widebody service by any carrier.

American used a 767 Nashville-London when they used to have a hub at BNA. I'm not sure about cargo, but to my knowledge the largest passenger aircraft operated into BNA is a 757 on Delta.

I remember seeing a Continental A300 at MCI in the early 90's, when they still had a hub at Denver.

Actually the NW DC-10 flight went SEA-GTF-BIL-MSP. (There might have been a stop at GEG but I'd have to check that) There was also a NW DC-10 flight from BIL-ORD nonstop as late as mid 80's. GTF still gets a few oddball flights like an OAI DC-10 or Sierra Pacific B737-200, but is still basically stuck with Northwest, Delta, Horizon, and Big Sky..er..Mesaba?  Smile
