Aviation Daily 20 October 1971 tells about test flights of a 10 passenger Turbo Mallard between BOS, the East River in NY, and "both the Potomac River and National Airport". Doesn't say where it docked in NY. The interesting item: "Last phase of flight testing will involve evaluation of the Talar IFR system installed out in the East River on the end of a dock."

Anybody heard of Talar? Where was the NY setup? What visibility did it need?

Quoting timz (Thread starter):
Anybody heard of Talar?

There are a few Google results. Here's a brief summary, an abstract of a longer publication. Stands for Tactical Approach and Landing Radar.

Forgot about Downtown Airlines, which supposedly tried floatplane flights NY-Philadelphia-Washington in 1969. (One mention said Aztecs, another said Cessnas.) The Talar probably didn't exist then? How long did Downtown's flights last?
