Vanguard. What a name for an airline. Especially for one that was based at...of all places....Kansas City. Anyone care to shed some light on what this airline was about?
I know they operated 737-200's and later, MD-80's. But for a brief time, they also operated a couple of Dash 300's, as the accompanying pictures show. Frankly, I'm surprised this airline lasted as long as they did.
All three were taken at LAX, if memory serves correctly, sometime in 1996. I know they started in early 1995 and didn't come to LAX until quite some time later. Judging from the conditions (picture 1 shows very little smog whereas pix 2 and 3 are considerably smoggy), I apparently saw this plane and took the pix on 2 different dates.
Thanks for looking.
