Anyone recall how many DC-9's (-31's and-51's, I believe) and Convair's (440's or 580's, etc) that North Central Airlines contributed to the merger with Southern Airways in 1979? Were other NC aircraft involved?
Tom in NO (at MSY)
PS: I flew to a conference in Milwaukee (from ONT) at the time of the merger, American ONT-ORD, then NC ORD-MKE. I hadn't heard of the merger (it was brand new news, and neither served SoCal at the time). Got to ORD and couldn't find the NC counter (I was just 18 at the time, like I knew!!!). Finally was directed to the Republic counter. Did nab a killer NC DC-9 pic from the ORD observation deck, though.
