I never was aware TWA ever served Toledo Ohio until I saw some route maps from the late 1950s.What routes?

TWA flew to Detroit, Columbus and Dayton. It looks like sometime in the late 60's and through the 70's they dropped Toledo. Then they started flying there again after deregulation from St. Louis.

On further research, it looks as though Toledo was a stop. On the Going "west bound" the flights would originate in Detroit, then to Toledo, then Dayton and/or Columbus, then Cincinnati. There was also a daily flight that would then continue from Cincinnati to Louisville and then to St. Louis. There were 5 west bound flights a day all on DC-3's. Going "east bound" there were 3 flights a day, two starting in Cincinnati, and one in Dayton, all flown with DC-3s, and ending in Detroit.

I flew to TOL every summer from PHX as a kid (in the 80's) .. TWA was the airline we flew mostly, what great memories. 727-100/200's and after the merger with Ozark, DC 9-10's .. I have photos I need to scan and upload of the TWA hybrid colors on DC 9-10.

Thanks for starting the thread.
