In my career with a certain large East Coast airline starting in 1986, I flew the 727-200, 737-200/300/400, Fokker F-28-4000 and E-190 into ORF. Also the F-28 into PHF
- that was the end of mainline service there back in 1996.
ORF was also a 727/737 crew base for many years for PI
, closing around 1988 or 89.
Back in the 60s and 70s you could ride on a National 727 from PHF
to ORF. I believe that was NAL's shortest route segment - a few miles less than TPA
