By "Yellowbird" you mean Northeast, which was acquired by Delta in 1972.

Purdue Airlines was a "supplemental" (charter) airline owned and operated by Purdue University. They ceased operations in the early '70s, I'm not sure exactly when. The DC-9 simulator and other remnants of the airline are still in use today by Purdue's outstanding aviation program.
