Bluegrass Airlines - Any Info?

Sat Oct 28, 2006 4:39 am

On a recent trip to the Highlands Museum and Discovery Center in Ashland, Ky I came across a brochure and route map for Bluegrass Airlines. This is the extent of information I have on the real Bluegrass Airlines, from various sources:

From web-site:

The real Bluegrass Airlines that was started in Bowling Green KY in 1944 by a doctor and his two sons and which had its routes incorporated into the schedules of Imperial Airlines in 1946. Imperial was eventually taken over by Delta Airlines.

From web-site:

Bluegrass Airlines
c.1945: no data One of the first post-war intrastate lines; operated between Louisville, Bowling Green, Lexington, Ashland, Owensboro, Madisonville, and Paducah KY. Ended operations in late 1946 --- opinions differ. (--- Jerry Marlette 8/23/00)

Ebay has had a postcard for sale which depicted Madisonville KY and the Bluegrass Airlines route map. is for a VA.

The information on their website matches the scant info available at the museum. The curators at Highlands Museum have no other information on the airline.

Does anybody out there know anymore about Bluegrass Airlines?
