Wrong wrong wrong.........
was what became of Iowa Airways after they ceased operations as a Midway Connection carrier...And Iowa Airways was an offshoot of Stuart Adcock's Airline Tennessee Airways based out of Knoxville, Tn. that flew Cessna 402s and EMB 110s initially but he then got Navajos...He initially shifted some of the Navajo Cheiftains (actually T-1020s) north and flew them from DBQ-CID
as an Independant airline but, they also did a 4 rt service from DBQ to MDW
as a Midway Connection.....serving Midway Airlines#1.The Bandits joined the fleet a little later... Waterloo was added too to the DBQ to MDW
routes as was Elkhart Indiana and Benton Benton Harbor and Flint Michigan after service to those cities was terminate by Air Wisconsion after the merger with MVA....
So when Iowa Airways shut down Ops the people running the show moved the Company out to LA
and Began service as Air LA
On the other hand, Capitol Air that started service into Midway Airport from the Downtown St. Paul Airport had NOTHING to do with Air LA
.....After Capitol Air failed as a carrier of sorts flying from STP
to both MDW
.....the airline was acrtually taken over by Idaho based Empire Airways, but eventually they stopped those flights.. Empire actually helped out a lot of fledgling carriers much like Big Sky does today...
.So no there was never any fligths from MDW
to Mermosillo Mexico!!! Operated by Air LA
or Capitol.... Where in blue hell did that come from????
I worked with former Iowa Airways people thet left the compnay to work for Great Lakes.......And the former Chief Pilot fior the small commuter airline that I worked for from 1988-1990 Called Propheter Aviation, he left to go fly for Air LA
I hope that clears all that mess up....
