Snapshot: North Amer OAG 5/81 (EWR)

Sat Jan 28, 2006 5:33 am

Another auction listing, so more extracts, from the May 1981 North American OAG this time.

I didn't find it, but the Stop Press claims that somewhere in this OAG a flight is operated with a DHC, DeHavilland Comet 4. Can't be right?

People Express was just getting started out of Newark-- all their flights are shown PENDING GOVT APPROVAL. All 737-100s I assume? They show six each weekday from BUF, four from CMH and four from ORF; if the OAG is right the 31 May additions are one weekday nonstop from JAX and one from CLE. (It says three SaSu nonstops from CLE and two from JAX-- think that's right?)

Other weekday fixed-wing nonstop flights into EWR:

EA-- a 72S from ALB, 72S-A300-D9S-72S-72S from ATL, L10 from BDA, 727-L10-727-727-A300-72S from BOS, two 727 and a D9S from CLT, D9S-L10-72S-72S from FLL, 72S from GSO, 727-72S from IAH, 72S-A300-A300-D9S from MIA, 727 from MSY, 727-72S from MCO, 727 from PHL, D9S from PVD, two 72S from SJU, 72S and two A300 from TPA, four 72S from DCA and a 72S from PBI.

DL-- L10-72S-72S-D8S-D8S from ATL, L10-72S from FLL, D8S from BDL, 72S from MSY, D8S from MCO, and a 72S from TPA.

AL--727 from BOS, B11-B11-D9S-B11-D9S from BUF, 727 from BDL, 727 from IND, 727-D9S from MSP, three D9S two B11 and a 727 from PIT, D9S from PVD, two B11 and a D9S from ROC, 727-D9S from SYR.

PI-- three 73S from BOS, two 73S from CVG, two 73S from GSO, 727-73S-727-73S-73S from ORF, two 73S and a 727 from RDU, two 73S from RIC and one from ROA.

UA-- two 747s and three D10s from ORD, four 737 from CLE, two 72S from DEN, a 727 from MCI, two D10 from LAX and a D10 from SFO.

AA-- a 707 from BDA, three 72S and a D10 from ORD, a D10 from SJU and a 72S from YYZ.

TW-- 727-707-707-727 from ORD, an L10 from LAX, three 727 and a 707 from PIT and two 707 from STL.

PA-- 72S-727 from FLL, three 727 from MIA, 72S from MCO, 727 from SRQ, 727-72S-72S from DCA and 72S from PBI.

CO-- two D10 and a 72S from DEN and three 72S from IAH.

NW-- five 72S from DTW, a 727 from MSP, a 72S from PHL and a 72S from PIT.

BN-- three 72S from DFW, one 72S from BDL, one from MEM and one from DCA.

WO-- one D10 from each: BWI-BOS-LAX-OAK

Altair-- three F28s from BWI and four from DCA.

That's all the weekday jets; then there's

Allegheny Commuter-- five Twin Otters from ARX Asbury Park. They're shown as Allegheny, but the one-stops AIY-ARX-EWR are shown as Allegheny Commuter. Then there's three SH3 from MDT, a Dash 7 and three Nords from BDL, ditto from PVD, four Nords from PHL, three SH3 from RDG, four Beech from AVP and three Beech from IPT.

Your DHC was generic identification for DeHavilland Canada. For many years is was used that way for various DHC a/c (Otter, Twin Otter, Beaver, etc.) but in later years, it mostly applied to the DHC-6 Twin Otter

Yup, that's what you'd expect-- but in the "Stop Press" this issue it spells out that DHC means Comet 4. Doubtless that's wrong, but it would be nice to find the schedule listing showing "DHC".

I think it is an error on the part of Stop Press.
Checked my Comet book (by Stewart Wilson), and while Comets were few, but still flying in 1981, none that I can find were in North America.
The closest would be Mexicana, which operated theirs (4C) until 1970.

The other possibility was Aerolineas Argentina....thinking maybe a domestic sector (i.e. MIA-JFK) tagging the intercontinental part, but AR flew their Comets (4C) until 1971.

The last Comet scheduled activity on this side of the world (N/C/S America) I believe was operated by AREA of Ecuador. It was sometime during the early/mid 1970's, but I think was very short lived. At the time of the printing of the OAG in question during 1981, I can positively guarantee you that there were no Comet operations in this region. Obviously, a misprint because I can also guarantee you that I would have done anything to have taken a ride on it had it existed!
