US Airways Express

Tue Apr 30, 2002 8:03 am

I just visited PNS today and saw a US Airways Express DHC-8-102 Dash 8 reg. N923HA and A B1900 reg. N218YV. I can't find either of these in the 2001/2002 JP Airline Fleets. What airline are they under?

Does Hanson Airlines exist? Under Alleghany (US Airways Express) it only lists -8s and no B1900s and it doesn't even have the -8 reg.

Ok, but Henson was taken over by Piedmont or Alleghany. I think that YV is Colgan Air.

At the end of the reg numbers:

HA = Henson Air which is now Piedmont, USAirways Express

YV = AirMidwest, which is part of Mesa Airlines, which operates here in the east mostly as USAirways Express
Up, up and away!
